Here are the top 5 reasons my kids give for not eating their food.
- The food is too hot.
- The food is too cold.
- The food has something dirty in it. (Translates: Something chewable or something new)
- I don't want to eat the green and orange.
- I'm full. (Have not started eating or can gobble up something else that they like in an instant after that expression.)
And here is my reply to any of the above.
