For dinner tonight I made one of my favorite dishes. I call it cheesy chicken skillet. It has potatoes, broccoli, chicken, and a cheese sauce - all cooked in a skillet. Bryn use to like this dish when she was younger. She use to eat broccoli a lot. But lately, she acts like she's dying if I make her eat it. So, for dinner I dished some up for her; leaving out the broccoli. But then I thought she should really have at least one piece. She hardly ever eats veggies, so I thought this was a great time for her to have some. So I put one piece of broccoli on her dish. She wasn't too happy about it, but she was brave and said she'd eat it. You would have thought someone was choking her! She put it in her mouth and then proceeded to gag and cough. I know she was trying, but there were a few times she really looked like she was going to throw up! Is it bad to force your kids to eat foods they don't like? Will it ruin their eating habits later in life?
