When your kid chooses to eat her veggies over greasy junk food...

As much as many parents have experienced picky eaters or lovers of junk food, we must admit that not all parents face this problem. 

However, as a collective, we rarely see kids making healthier food choices. That behaviour has a lot to do with parents and how they conduct their lifestyles.

Kids watch their parents eat, and they learn their habits from them. It's a tricky situation that doesn't have one view. 

Some might say with conviction that if you put a healthy and unhealthy meal in front of a toddler, the toddler will choose the unhealthy meal. 

But that is not always the case. And we are ignorant if we think so. 

A mother joked about her toddler being broken because she was happy to eat her veggies, particularly the lettuce from her salad, even though she had a pizza.
