I agree.  My (ELCA Lutheran) church has activity baskets for young children to use during the service.  They include coloring sheets with crayons, a preschool-level book of Bible stories, and the like.

We always had collection we called "the bag of holy fun" we took to church every Sunday when our kids were little.  It contained a few colouring books, board books, and sippy cups with water or juice, and the ubiquitous tupperware of cheerios.

My oldest wasn’t picky when he was a baby. But slowly became pickier and pickier over time. He used to love yogurt, bananas, cottage cheese, and mashed sweet potatoes. Now he won’t touch any of that. I’m hoping that since he liked them as a baby, he will eventually like them again.

Tastes change over time and as people grow. I believe. At least mine did. When I was a kid, I hated eggs, broccoli, "smelly" vegetables - brussels sprouts, asparagus, etc. I also hated red meat, except cheeseburgers. 

Now, all of those are staples in my diet. And those smelly veggies are really the only ones I do like. The only thing that stuck was fried eggs. I hated them especially among eggs as a kid & I still hate them. I love anything scrambled, omelettes, egg cups (basically like omelettes baked in a muffin tin), poached, even hard boiled, on a breakfast sandwich - just don't fry those suckers anywhere near me. 

I also often find myself in the position of being willing to sell my soul for a good, grilled steak or slow cooked chuck roast. I do still like cheeseburgers.

My tastes changed. However there are some things I’ve slways hated and always will hate. I assume because I’ve hated them for 37 years. It just seems too late now! One of those things is pickles. God how I hate them.

@fundiefan, I loathed fried eggs as a kid—especially the whites. (I had major texture issues with eggs, meat, and poultry—anything fatty, slimy, or rubbery.) As an adult, one day I decided, “This is ridiculous,” and decided to fry myself an egg. I actually looked up the directions in my trusty 1972 Betty Crocker Cookbook—and was amazed at the results. It turns out I didn’t hate fried eggs—I hated the way my dad (who made breakfast for us) made them! He cooked them over high heat, so the whites got tough and rubbery and crunchy around the edges. I got much better results with lower heat.

For me, it’s peas.  Mom said that she tried to feed me peas at 11 months old and I spit them halfway across the room, and to this day, the smell alone makes me want to hurl.

My father-in-law says that he's never chewed a pea in his life.  He can swallow them whole though. He's about 87.

It's funny - my eldest has hated scrambled eggs since I first introduced them at whatever baby age that was...so long ago I don't remember but I went by the book regarding introducing foods.

Has always, still, and I'm sure will always hate them with an intensity that's kind of odd for such a bland food.  He likes eggs in other ways, just not scrambled.  Just funny how some preferences stick.

I've never eaten scrambled eggs, my mum couldn't get me to try them and as I got older my refusal became even more entrenched.  I eat eggs in other forms, I also love egg fried rice, but there's something sinister about a heap of smelly yellow globs sat on a plate - even the feel of a fork pushing into the pile <shudder>

Me too. I have eaten them, but yeah - give me the option and I will choose a different egg cooking method. It's totally texture based with me I think.

I love scrambled eggs but I hate when they are over cooked. They are rubbery and gross. I cook mine so they are still soft and not rubbery at all. I remember as a kid that I hated overcooked scrambled eggs and if I knew someone overcooked them (like an aunt I was staying with), I would say no thank you. Even as a kid I was a scrambled egg snob.

I prefer fried eggs And esp. egg sandwich’s. But as long as the  scrambled eggs have lots of cheese and salt and pepper I enjoy them ok. But I always have eggs with ketchup. Is that weird?

The last thing I did last evening before I shut down the laptop was to watch an episode of America's Test Kitchen where Bridget and Julia made French style soft scrambled eggs.  The secret is going low and slow.  

I remember reading Julia Child's description of her first lesson at Cordon Bleu in her book My Life in France.  She talked about how she'd volunteered to make scrambled eggs and it was all wrong: too high a heat and beating the eggs too furiously.  The teacher chef then demonstrated the proper way to make scrambled eggs: beat the eggs, but not too much and then cook them over low heat.  I followed what the chef's method and had perfect scrambled eggs.

@tabitha2. it's not weird to have ketchup with your eggs.  Lots of people do.

No - that's how they are most delicious.

If, by ketchup, you mean sriracha sauce, absolutely not weird!

That's true, but in this corner of the country people use sriracha like ketchup. It's pretty common to find a bottle on the table at a casual dining place, alongside the ketchup. I just checked my fridge and my bottle of ketchup expired this month and I know I've bought and used at least two bottles of sriracha since I bought the ketchup.

Ketchup is my lifeblood, so much so I didn't know it could expire...and I always have a spare in the pantry to prevent any ketchup emergencies.  When I did major shopping in preparation of staying at home it was higher on my list than toilet paper :)

Ketchup and I do not have a relationship. The only time I will use it is when I have a burger, and it has to be ordered on the side with a side of mustard, so I can create my own perfectly proportioned combination.

I got my daughter to eat green beans by setting a little cup of ketchup on her plate with them. She dipped them like French fries and gobbled them up. 

I’m sure the Maxwell kids never get to “break the rules” when it comes to food. 
 

Speaking of rules...poor Axton and his food training just reminded me of how fundies change the rules for their kids. His birthday cake is the perfect example. He is trained not to touch is food, then his birthday comes along and his idiot mother is disappointed he won’t touch his cake.
 

How is she supposed to get a good photo for the blog if he WON’T SMASH HIS CAKE!?!

I used to eat green beans that way too. 

I used to be obsessed with ketchup but I now like a lot of other condiments too. Except mustard. I hate mustard with a fiery passion.

I used to be a very picky eater and hated all condiments but now I’ll eat most any condiment....except ketchup. Can’t stand it and never have been able to eat it, not even on a burger. Guess I’m the odd one out here 🤷‍♀️

Heinz?

The gold standard.  

In a famine if it was the only one available Hunt's can be substituted...but it's a pale imitation of the King of Ketchup.
