All the years that I have lived in Holland, I remember many children complaining about not liking to eat sprouts. It’s one of the most spoken vegetable among st children that is not tasty and that they hate it. 🤢
Before my children started going to school, they ate everything because after 6 months of breastfeeding I introduced food to them.
Now that they go to school, they definitely get influenced by other children about what to eat and what not to. Unfortunately it’s easier to be influenced negatively than positively.
Today I decided to make the sprouts that way like you see in the picture, before that they were all nagging on my head that’ ”ieeeeuuuuuw. We are not gonna eat that because bla bla this girl at school doesn’t eat it too. ”😅
I know for a fact that it wasn’t a custom in The Netherlands in general for children to eat a variety of greens.
Most parents I spoke with, of which they are many because of my work, were struggling introducing vegetables to their children.
This whole industry that make mashed baby and toddler food killed most of the children’s natural sense of taste and sense of chewing.
Think of those who did not get the chance to be breastfed.
I am happy to have grown up in Africa where we already practiced nature. To be continued.
PS my children enjoyed the meal, the sprouts are finished and everyone is talking about it. Their dad called his mom telling her that he has never eaten such tasty sprouts before.😜❤
So when I was reading a book before they went to bed, I said to them, whenever someone says to you that she or he does not like to eat some certain foods, please do not give, because the ways of cooking can differ. So we have come to an agreement with the kids, yupiiiiiiiiiiii💃💃💃💃😂🙅🏿♂️
