Re: Getting over wasted food

I agree with very small portions, and then she can always ask for more. My husband has a HUGE issue with wasting food, but I try to look at it as once it is on their plate it's gone, it's either going in their stomach or the trash, so there is no reason to worry about it once it's on their plate. Either way, it's not going back in with the leftovers.

We don't give seconds of anything unless they have at least tried what is on their plate though, so no seconds of pasta if they didn't touch their veggies. They don't have to eat everything, but before they get more, they have to at least try it.
