THIS is the key to saving money. I know several people who say their kids will only eat Toaster Strudel for breakfast. Really? The truth is, they don't want a fight in the morning. Trust me, if they get hungry enough, they will eat whatever you are serving them. This was my mom's philosophy, and my mother-in-law's, so dh and I are on the same page on this issue.
There is a couple we are good friends with, and the wife told me recently that she regrets only serving her kids "what they would eat." She said she's embarrassed that they are 10 and 14 and refuse to eat much of what is served at pot-lucks, church dinners, family get-toghethers, etc.
