Picky eaters are challenging. Often it is the parents’ perspective that is discussed and the focus is on ways to deal with picky eaters. Should we serve everyone in the family the same food? Is it dangerous to let a child choose his own food? What can we do to stop him being so picky?
I was a picky eater, and I used to spend “hours” moving food around on the plate. My reason was similar to the boy in this video who explains to his mother why he does not want to eat octopus. Luiz Antonio says that fish are animals and so are pigs, cows and octopi, and they should stay “standing up.” Luiz message is that we must take care of animals and not eat them.
