RANT: Your Kids Will Eat What You Do

If you’ve ever had a 12 month old, you know they want what you have.  They want your phone, your keys, your coffee.  The same is true at meal time.  If you’re eating chips, they’ll want chips.  If you’re eating salad, they are 100% more likely to explore the texture of your salad, than if they’ve never seen you eating greens.
