The youngest though, will still not eat broccoli.

I only eat Annie's Mac & Cheese, have for years now. And it is organic and yum yum yummy makes me want some right now!
Only thing I still like that comes in a box otherwise we eat pretty natural stuff our of our garden or at the community garden.edit on 2-6-2013 by abeverage because: (no reason given)
The gluten free Annie's is awesome.
I could overeat on the K mac stuff and get a food zinger (you know that cheap thrill feeling from eating those chemicals). As a kid I was addicted to the stuff too. Couldn't get more nutritionally questionable unless you put chunks of hotdogs in it. In hindsight, it's practically junk food, and kids aren't nutritionists.edit on 2-6-2013 by Sandalphon because: did I mention it was junk food?

We have some friends like that. You and I don't subscribe to the same child rearing philosophy.
When I was a kid I was treated like that. One time I was forced to drink my orange juice and I puked. I still can't drink orange juice to this day. I never made my kids eat stuff they didn't like. I am not all about you have to clean your plate.
Do you make them be quiet at the dinner table too?

I hate your avatar. Everytime I see it I have to listen to some ELO. Hmmmmm, could be a conspiracy there, sublimal messaging maybe?
But you are right I think to a degree. It's not so much as addicting, but rather convenience. I would bet dollars to donuts (Oops!) that if the kid ddin't see the box, he wouldn't know it wasn't Kraft. Then you just wait until he's older and explain it to him.

Back in the day dude people didn't know that stuff was bad. There was no internet. I have learned more in the last 15 years than I did through out the 20 something years prior. I didn't say I am feeding it to them now. One just graduated college and one is going into his sophomore year. But I betcha if you looked in there cupboards you would find a blue box.

Personally, I agree with you. As a mother, it is our job to not only ensure our child's health and nutrition, but to also encourage healthy eating habits in their future. But I think some people have become overly critical to the OP while trying to make their point.
Getting your picky eater in the kitchen with you to help prepare healthy meals will work wonders at the dinner table. Also, kids love to dig in the dirt, so let them grow their own! Sometimes you just need to get creative and do a little trial and error.
Don't let your food issues be their food issues. I see the topic of food typically getting heated up on ATS and I ask myself why that is. There seems to be a general concern in the health and wellness area as well. Stay healthy ATS! Eat raw fresh fruits and veggies, beans and nuts , get some exercise and laugh a lot with friends. And love love love! That's it really.
