Food for thought?

Hubby and I were talking last night about our kids' eating habits/preferences. Here's a list of their favourites:
  • macaroni, cooked with tomato juice
  • Kraft Dinner
  • blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries
  • grapes
  • bananas
  • mashed potatoes
  • broccoli
  • green & yellow beans
  • spaghetti & parmesan cheese from East Side Marios
  • french fries with copious amounts of vinegar
  • plums
  • peaches
  • scrambled or boiled eggs
  • grill cheese sandwiches
  • tomato soup
That is basically all the foods they will eat. Hubby and I are left wondering,
Where the hell did they come from?

4 year old daughter rarely touches chocolate and will only eat plain chocolate - we LOVE it; any variety. And every Saturday night when I'm making nachos, nacho dip or bringing out the chips for Hockey NIght in Canada, she asks for a veggie tray! In fact, one day she said to me,
"Remember the good ole days, you know, Mommy, when we used to have veggie trays?"
She simply NEVER looks for junk food. Weird, I tell you. Plain weird.

What will your kids be having for lunch? Supper? or while watching Hockey Night in Canada?


  1. Funny:) Your kids have obviously learned some great eating habits from you, like loving veggies. It's great that they eat such a variety of foods.

    My son loves veggies as well, but he also loves sweets and junk food, though I try to limit those things.

    If my hubby is eating chips while watching hockey, he will definately be munching on those as well, he won't be asking for veggies:)

    Dinner, Lunch and Breakfast? He generally eats the same things that we do.

  2. Hmmm. I don't know if it's from us, or if they're simply weird?!?! :P

    I just hope the good eating habits stick!
