Oh yeah, that's the best philosphy to feeding kids. Their choice is what is being cooked, or nothing. Nowadays parents ask their kids what they want for dinner. That may have happened to us on our birthdays, maybe. Food dictatorships are better.
But the food nowadays really is Frankenfood, it is being messed up to be commodity, not a form of health and nutrition. Increased agricutural productivity is killing taste. I grow a few tomatoes on my balcony each year, and they taste fantastic. Our food is being denatured by science for profit. I disagree with this.
People are more senstitive now. I remember being told by a girl, "Do you know what milk smells like?" I said no, I have no idea. Then she told me, that at school, when somebody has a cucumber, she can smell it right away. I was surprised. People have become more sensitive to food because its gotten worse. The world is getting nicer looking slop, and its not as healthy for us.
