    Children will take anything literally when it’s to their advantage.

    Here, have some nice tofu flavored with kaolinite. And some rhubarb greens. And some… honey, why aren’t you eating?

    That kind of jailhouse lawyering will get you a nice seat in the corner for an hour, kid.

    I had real problems with cabbage when I was a kid. It was made worse by the fact that Dad grew some awful white, slimy variety which Mum boiled to death. Anyway, one Saturday lunch time there were the usual problems with me pulling my best Calvin faces. As a result I got sent out into the back lobby and wouldn’t be allowed in until I’d eaten the foul stuff. Salvation was at hand though. Aha! There were rows of Wellington boots in the lobby and a little cabbage in each solved the problem. Until they put the boots on by which time the cabbage was dried up and unrecognisable. Fifty years on the s ene remains clear in my mind. What a horrible kid I was.

    my son used to put his peas under his plate and then push it down so I couldn’t see them, I finally just stopped serving him peas and to this day he hates peas. Personally I love them.

    I still remember my mother catching me in this same act because the toilet didn’t flush everything down the first time!

    You say potato; I say potato.
    You like peas, I also like pies.

    Broccoli’s not so bad – if it’s COOKED enough! Personally, I don’t care for vegetables that have the consistency of oak trees.

    Horrible? Hardly.
    Desperate, yes, horrible, no.
    It’s reassuring to know my grandmother wasn’t the only one who boiled vegetables beyond recognition.
