Kids and Food

An interesting article about kids and food.

I'm reminded that in my childhood my dad almost always said to me, at the table, "Did you get enough to eat?" I've heard parents now ask this of their children, as if they're worried a child won't get enough. I've never heard a child answer "no" to this question; I never did. One of the messages (though subtle) a child could take away from such a question is that he should eat to please his parent, instead of eating to nourish himself and stop when his body tells him it's time.
