You know, the “clean your plate” mentality toward kids and dinner time is why we have such a large portion of our population being overweight now days in the US. I mean, don’t give the kid desert if he doesn’t finish dinner, fine… But making a kid sit at the table until he finishes eating only ends up teaching bad habits that stick into adulthood. I know a lot of overweight people, myself included, that eat as much as they do because it’s so ingrained into them that they’re supposed to eat until the food is gone rather than stopping when they’re full.
