my kids are not picky eaters.  well, unless you try to serve them frozen peas or brussel sprouts {this makes me sad}.  i take pride in the fact that my kids will try most anything once.  if they like it, they'll ask for it again.  in our home, you eat what is served to you or you go hungry.  but, i think a lot of what my kids eat is due to the fact that adam & i are not picky eaters ourselves.  in fact, we're very daring when it comes to food.  apparently, so are my kids.

here are just a few favorites that my kids - ages 7 & 9 - enjoy:

pho, more specifically chicken pho:

mochi with red bean paste: 

peking duck:


dan tat: 

okay, okay...everything pictured is some sort of asian treat and, yes, i grew up on all of this stuff so maybe that is why my kids like it, too, but here are some other things {in list form} that my kids love that might surprise you:
  • greek yogurt
  • blue crab {they can pick the hell out of some crabs}
  • clams
  • sauteed spinach {heavy on the garlic}
  • blue cheese dressing
  • prunes
  • fish of any kind
  • couscous
this certainly doesn't cover everything they love, but it does give you a good idea about how atypical their palates are compared to other 7 & 9 year olds.

do you have some quirky food favorites?  what about your kids {if you have any}?

I think the fact that you eat certain things helps your kids eat them. Most adults I know are pretty picky eaters and so are their kids. They drive me crazy when they come to our house sometimes. We are an 'eat what you're served' house, too but apparently there are alot of parents out there that are short order cooks. Once, dinner even turned up @ breakfast here when my daughter didn't eat it. It only had to happen once to know I wasn't kidding!
