Honestly, what kind of asshole move is that? Most vegetables have very few calories and packing her JUST vegetables just to get her to eat them is a childish move on your part and not a healthy and filling lunch at all. Instead, try giving her lunches she likes and save the vegetables for dinner when you can control what goes in the trash
are you one of those new millenial parents who think their child is a special precious snowflake who should never be offended? if your child is obstinate to the point where theyre manipulating and telling serious lies to get their own way, and all youre trying to do as a DECENT, WELL INTENTIONED parent is to get some vegetables into them, would you not try every option? you're either completely inexperienced with how difficult it is to raise a child, have been blessed with a much less difficult child or have some very uneducated and stupid ideas of what childish means.
Growing children are carnivorous, there is nothing to be done to stop that... You're going to have to appease the monster until adulthood, I fear!
I'm sorry, but that's poor parenting. I'm assuming they are in elementary school if they can't make their own lunch, and the fact that you decided to take the route of "you will eat this shit or starve" is really sad. I don't want to be "that guy", and I don't want to tell people how to parent, but taking this route is one of the worst way to teach someone to eat their veggies. You need to talk to her directly, and not force her into something like this.
Meh. I'm not gonna force my kid to eat only veggies, but I'm also not going to just let them eat whatever they want. My kids will eat what I cook for them at dinner, and if they don't like it, they don't have to eat at all but there won't be a substitution. When they're hungry, suddenly that food will look really good.
