• My mom used to use cookie-cutters on everything possible, and oddly enough used to put food color in some things to make it more fun.
  • No such animal. If you didn't eat what was cooked by your mother, you didn't eat. You were sent straight to bed hungry.
  • Nothing. If I didn't eat what my mom made, I wouldn't get anything to eat until I gave in. She would have NEVER catered to pickiness.
  • Grilled cheese sandwich or peanut butter & jelly.
  • We ate what was put in front of us. If you were picky you did without.
  • Long, long ago in a world far away from today, "picky" children did not exist. Children ate what was put on their plates. They had favorites, of course, but no one ever complained and no one, but no one, ever refused to eat anything nor did they talk back to their parents. Meals were pleasant. Something happened to parents..they gave up and turned daily life over to their kids' whims. No one ever said "no, you can't have that" or "no, you can't do that". So "children" as a species have been corrupted by their parents. The result? Picky eaters, among other things. Very sad! :(

      Picky eaters have always existed. Of course kids complained and talked back. What fantasy world are you living in? As a historian, I can guarantee you that life with kids has never been without its issues -- and pickiness. .
  • Whatever their Moms told them to eat.
  • Well, my brother, who is now 57, was and remains the epitome of the picky eater. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were his go-to meal in childhood.
  • My siblings and I ate whatever food was cooked by our parents, and there was no option to pick what food you want to eat. We ate the food that our parents cooked, or we went hungry.
  • not much hehe
  • As it should still be, whatever their parent(s) prepared for them...or else.
  • I was told to "eat my peas". And, i was told to "like 'em".
