Default Kids and food

What is the most off the beaten track "adult" food you have been able to get your children to eat?

I've heard of all sorts of methods of getting kids to eat things from hiding it in mashed potatoes to using reverse psychology.

Do any of you have a 9 year old who loves steak tartar or raw clams?

Just curious, no real moral to this story.

No, but I have a 9yr old that will fry venison steaks himself after school, in butter and garlic salt. Delicious!

That works! As a kid I liked venison an awful lot as well. I didnt like ketchup until I was a teenager though, go figure.

My 10 year old will eat almost anything, except tomatoes or fish. He'll eat spinach, raw and cooked, asparagus, lima beans, he eats the hottest chicken wings we can find, I really can't think of anything except fish and tomatoes that he won't eat.

Now, my 6 year old is kinda a PITA. Doesn't like most vegetables, have been really working just to get him to eat potatoes (mashed or home-style chunks) other than french fries. He's mostly fine, but as we try to eat better, he's the one out of the two that doesn't like most of the stuff. All-in-all though he's pretty good. At least I don't have to make him hot dogs or chicken fingers every night. He'll eat all the meat except fish, like his brother.

We food-process carrots and such and put them in our meatloaf. It's so tiny they don't even care. We make smoothies with frozen fruit, spinach, milk, etc. As long as it looks like a shake and tastes good, they don't even care if spinach is in it. If they're "lookers" make it tiny so they don't even notice it.

I don't have kids, but I do have nieces & nephews. I once left a can of sardines in mustard sauce on the table & my 4 year old niece started playing with it. The can was the pull-ring type & I told her if she opened it, she had to eat it. Sure enough, she cracked it open, so I got out the crackers & a fork, got her all set to eat sardines in mustard sauce on crackers; thinking it would be quite a battle. That little girl sat there & happily munched away on those sardines & actually asked for more when she'd eaten them all. I was so impressed, I gave her a fudgecicle after the 2nd can of sardines.
Regards, GF.

Love the sardines in mustard!

I made "mashed potatoes" from squash one time and made my little one eat it a few bites. She threw up.

Sow she won't eat anything that she knows has squash in it. Even if it's a completely different kind of squash.

She loves Pasties though. I think it's time to make a few again.

I really wanted to make a joke about nipple tassels, but thought better of it since your daughter was in the story. Had it been your wife or sister I wouldnt have been able to resist.

Now that that is out of my system, the history behind the Cornish Pasty is pretty interesting, and I would think that a kid especially would love the idea of lunch on the left and dessert on the right!

I think if you are trying to expand a kids eating horizons at 9 it is going to be pretty tough. I have some experience getting teenagers to eat different things and it is tough to expand peoples eating habits after years of limited exposure.

Our girls eat what we eat everyday or they don't eat. So they pretty much eat everything. I can't get my oldest to eat more than a bite or two of leafy greens, but that is about it. Both kids will readily eat everything from head cheese to pickled herring, to sushi, and meat pies. They don't always eat everything or like everything, but the rule is they need to take 3 bites of everything just to try it before they decide they don't like it. That's how I was raised, and I am happy with my own results so far. My girls are 3.5 and 2.

It's an allergy. My youngest has it, too. If he's even near a pumpkin being gutted, or tries any sort of squash, his gag reflex kicks in. Started when we were carving pumpkins one year. He couldn't be within 6 feet of them. He's fine with sweet potatoes, but no spaghetti squash, etc. Not sure about zucchini.
