"Eat everything on your plate!"

I read this article and while it doesn't really have anything to do with being a wife- I just wanted to respond to its main question... "DO YOU / YOUR FAMILY FINISH EVERYTHING ON YOUR PLATE?"


My answer: Yes, I pretty much always finish everything on my plate- but that's because my parents raised us to 'not waste'. Many times I couldn't chose my portions, therefore- this 'finish everyting on my plate thing' has allowed me to gain several unwanted pounds.

As for my kids, it varies. They're only 3 and 4 so if they're hungry and they LOVE it, they'll eat it all and sometimes ask for 2nds. But I don't 'make' them finish it if they're not hungry. I don't want them to develop the same over eating habits I have (and blame on my frugal parents.)
