While parents certainly have a huge impact on their children, sometimes the likes and dislikes that they develop are all their own. This is illustrated no better than by the fact that my two youngest children absolutely love vegetables for lunch. Far from health freaks, we have always encouraged healthy eating, but never to this extent. Pretty much every they requst some mix of cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, sweet peppers and/or carrots. I slip in a surprise every once in a while to remind them of the other important food groups, but yep, due to nothing that we have done, we are raising a couple of rabbits.
