Parents: Strange Foods Your Children Like

Tue Sep 14, 2010 9:05 pm

Sometimes, children have surprising food preferences. Our daughter is 10 months old now, and she was not a great eater so far. But since two weeks or so, she really really is keen on the following:

heavy German whole grain bread

topped with butter and goat cheese from Norway



She can't get enough of it for breakfast and dinner. It always cracks me up.

What about your children?

Actually, my kids like heavy German whole grain bread, too. And as that's impossible to find on the island, I bake it myself.

Also, they adore Eisbein mit Erbspueree (boiled pig's leg with mushy peas).

My daughter (age 3) loves this one VERY spicy chipotle Hummus but won't eat anything else even slightly spicy. Go figure...

My son (now nearly 6) devoured a plate of Mussels (!) when he was 3 and loved them.

But then soon, after seeing the movie "A Shark Tale" with the vegetarian shark he decided he didn't want to hurt any animals and declared himself a vegetarian. That lasted about a year, until at 4 1/2 he decided he loved hamburgers. Then for a while he was a "vegetarian" who ate hamburgers, and then a "vegetarian" who ate hamburgers and chicken and hot dogs. Recently, he's pretty much given up on calling himself a vegetarian, but he still won't touch any fish or seafood, so he wouldn't come near those mussels today.

We have a 15 month old boy.
He hates with a passion chocolate, chips (both crisps and "fries").
He loves all kinds of meat though! regular sausages, ham, beef, chicken, Polish sausages, Weißwurst. He only refused any of these when we put a condiment on (ketchup, sweet mustard).

By the time I was 6-7 I was eating seafood (lobster, crab, shrimp, scallops). There are people my age today (21) who have never had seafood or fish! Unbelievable..

My 4 year old daughter loves salad! Anytime we eat out and she has a choice of side dishes, she will pick ceasar salad over french fries every time!

my daughter (6 years old) likes tuna! How many small kids like this!? Pizza with tuna on it and her day is complete.
My son (8 years old) likes sweet chilisaus. If you ask, that's also not that common. It's the spicy version I might add.
When in doubt, flat out!

Hmmm. In my experience, most kids like tuna (i.e. tuna salad, with mayonaise etc.)

This is a character flaw. You should help your son overcome this disability in order to be a better person

My four year old will eat cauliflower and carrots with his dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets. That's it. He would rather go to bed hungry than eat anything else...and he has.

My 8 year old daughter refers to herself as a meat-a-tarian. If it once lived and was turned into food, she will eat it.

Not really strange for here, but my 2.5 year old daughter greatly enjoys natto (fermented soybeans) nori (dried seaweed) yoghurt drinks and tofu. We don't feed her much meat, and she like leafy greens very much.

She doesn't like chocolate, I'm pretty sure she has never had soft drinks and she had only one bite of McDonald's once by accident.

Too bad I'm not more like her!
