The #struggleisreal when it comes to getting kids to eat their food. Parents have turned to Twitter to share their sad attempts to get their children to eat any form of dinner, let alone anything green.
Getting children to eat involves quite the psychological warfare, and parents from around the world have blessed our timelines by sharing some of their craziest tactics. Parents also shared equally funny stories of their children proving to be quite the clever strategists, savvy negotiators or stubborn protesters. Either way, the result is 25 hilarious tweets from parents at the end of their rope.
1. Why are kids more inclined to eat their own boogers than to eat a delicious meal you’ve spent hours slaving over a hot stove to make? One parent ponders this inexplicable choice in a funny tweet suggesting we might as well resort to putting boogers on a plate and calling it dinner as children would be more inclined to eat it.
2. Parents are often forced to play the role of enforcer when realistically many would rather just cave in and eat ice cream for dinner. Even though we might spend half their childhood reminding kids of all the nutritious value ice cream lacks, little do they know we’d love nothing more than to break open a tub and have a scoop.
