What are some weird foods your kids like?

So what are some of the weird things your kids like to eat which aren't typical "kid foods?" My oldest loves lettuce, she will happily sit and eat a bowl of lettuce, no dressing or other salad things. And both my girls can eat their weight in grapefruit (they even love grapefruit juice) and olives

My DD loves, loves, loves grapefruit as well. Cannot get enough of it. And, she loves hot cereals, any time of day. She will even take oatmeal in her thermos for lunch. A kid at school once told her that oatmeal was "gross" and she said, "It's delicious and good for you!"

My DS loves Caesar salad, which led to him loving pretty much any salad. And, he loves spicy curry.

My almost 4 year old son loves tuna. It's not a particularly "weird" food, but he is extremely picky (does not like other kid friendly food such as mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, won't eat a single veggie, etc.) and tuna does have a strong flavor. He loves it.

My 11 year old loves lettuce as well and always has! She eats it plain.

My DS loves broccoli and cauliflower. He won't eat carrots, peas, grapes, cherries, or many other kid-friendly foods.

DD has always liked just about everything, including artichokes, asparagus, and bell peppers but she won't touch tomato, pizza, or hamburgers.

Re: What are some weird foods your kids like?

My 2 yr old twins like alot of odd things:

raw potato
raw onion
green olives
pickles
lemons - they'd eat them like I would eat an orange

One of my twins LOVES spicy food - DH likes to put hot sauce on everything and she always asks for some on her food too - she even eats wasabi peas!

ETA - they both prefer veggies over potatoes - they always eat them first.

My 4 year old is going to be a cheese expert. She loves goat cheese, feta, gorganzola. On her 4th birthday she could pick anything and she wanted Artichokes, goat cheese and water with ice!

DD loves artichokes, olives, anything kinda spicy, and LOVES anything with balsamic vinegar. Of course I love balsamic too, so she's probably just used to having since she was in utero!

Re: What are some weird foods your kids like?

My DS loves spicy foods. My DH has given him crazy spicy chicken and he loved it. My stepdad is from Mexico and had some of his salsa out when we were visiting and DS ate some and wanted more. My SD couldn't believe it. But, he hates pasta, he will not even touch it.
My DD loves bread. She loves to make it, smell it and eat it plain. She also loves tea, which everyone thinks it weird.
