My name is Megan and I live in the suburbs of Vancouver Canada with my husband Tony, two boys Cole and Bennett, and baby girl Ayla.

My 9-year-old son Cole is the pickiest one of the household. He’s famous for his “so-so” gesture when critiquing a meal. Although he manages to find parts of the meal that he likes, there are usually plenty of things that he doesn’t like about it. As he matures, he’s starting to learn to be more polite when he doesn’t enjoy something I make. He’ll say things like “that’s not really my favourite,” or “I don’t want to be rude, but…” I think that’s a much better approach than whining (which he still does a lot, too).
Cole’s favourite food
Breakfast for dinner, with eggs, bacon and hashbrowns.
Cole’s least favourite food
It’s hard to pick just one! Probably perogies. He’s crazy.
If you read my blog, you’ll probably notice that my 7-year-old son Bennett likes to give my food a thumbs-up most of the time. Don’t be fooled by this; he’s actually pickier than he seems. He’ll often say he likes something, but then leave most of it on his plate. He’s a busy guy and has trouble sitting still at the dinner table long enough to eat a full meal.
Bennett’s favourite food
Macaroni and cheese with broccoli. It’s one meal that he can actually sit still for, and he’ll eat several helpings.
Bennett’s least favourite food
Ice cream. It’s funny, he likes the idea of ice cream, but not actually eating it. If he sees Cole having some ice cream, he’ll ask for some too, only to leave it uneaten and melting. It’s such a shame; I hate seeing good ice cream go to waste.
