Teaching Children to enjoy new and novel foods was much easier when school lunches were government surplus slop. We were hungry enough to eat them, so anything else was greatly appreciated.

Now both Princess and Gothgrrl are adventurous eaters who pay attention to nutrition. How did that happen? This comic is from Chris Hallbeck at Maximumble.
