you are not going to win them all. You just have to win enough. Be firm and consistent at home. I got enough out of it that my daughter ( going to college in 2 years) will eat eggs, parmesan, broth, and some vegetables every day.

I???ve heard that there are many ways to skin a cat, and I believe this. I also believe that no crazy cat-skinning method should be dismissed outright. Ideas are useful even if they???re wrong. One idea I like very much comes from a book I???m... (more)
What persistent, albeit wrong or misguided idea(s) has (have) shaped your health and nutrition worldview? I used to think that humans could 'design' foods better than nature.
