When it comes to picky eating kids, we’re all the same at heart.
« What frustrates you the most when it comes to food and your kid? »
« What frustrates me the most when trying to feed my kids is having to compete with advertising. If it's green they don't want it, so they avoid vegetables. But if they saw on TV there was a new green hot dog, they would try it for sure.
One thing I have managed to do is — instead of making them eat a burger — I make sure they eat a good piece of steak. »

« I moved with my two-year-old and five-year-old kids from New York City to Delhi in the last five years, and the most frustrating part was trying to find reliable organic, GMO free, antibiotic-free options. I had not anticipated how difficult it would be find organic food that I took for granted when I was in NYC — things like milk for my kids that was not adulterated or antibiotic-free chicken and eggs!
We ended up buying non-organic blueberries and strawberries that were imported from the United States at ten times the cost because we couldn't trust the quality of the local fruits and vegetables. There is a complete absence of regulation of fresh produce, dairy and meats available in the local markets in urban India. »

« As a mother of a two-year-old girl my frustrations are :
A) The limited options when I take her out to eat in a restaurant. It's either chicken and fries or applesauce, a hamburger and fries, or spaghetti.
B) How expensive it is to eat healthy. My daughter eats healthy but I eat a lot of absolute garbage and fast food because it costs way less.
C) Having to freeze a month's worth of food because it's WAY too difficult to make my daughter dinner every day and still have money for me and my husband. »
