Which is to say that you exactly agree with me :-)
I'm not suggesting that children don't have any food issues-- just that
they shouldn't be indulged any more than absolutely necessary.
(I am *not* into the idea that children be forced to "try" foods that
they really don't want, or that they be forced to clean their plates.)
