    weird foods kids eat

    My kid is a bit of a weird eater, eschewing cereal or even chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast in favor of fish fillets or hotdog.

    Recently, I bought some seaweed paper on a whim and he freaking loves the stuff -- I can't stand them. He asked at lunch today that I put seaweed paper in his lunchbox this year.

    So what weird stuff do your kids eat or did you eat as a kid?

    My youngest will take a whole baked potato (not cut up, no butter or anything) and dip it in a bowl of vinegar and eat it. *gag*

    Please take your kid out for sushi / other Japanese food. It sounds like he's into umami.

    What kind of fish fillets? Has he had kippers? Get him some kippers - they might be called kippered herring or smoked herring. They're frickin' delightful. They'll be near the tuna cans, around the smoked oysters in a can. Kippers are also full of omegas so I eat them all the time to fight cholesterol.

    I hate tomato ketchup, but I made this a couple months ago and have been putting it on everything wrong-thinkers would put tomato ketchup on, and it's frickin' awesome. But again, I like umami.

    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    I thought so too but he explained it to me and it doesn't seem so bizarre. He loves salt and vinegar potato chips and when I bake a potato, I rub the outside with grease and cover it in kosher salt. He says, the salt covered potato dipped in vinegar tastes like really awesome salt and vinegar potato chips.

    yeah, he has tried a couple pieces of sushi and always spit them out (I think its a texture thing)
    But otherwise he'll eat any cooked seafood you put in front of him. A plate of fried calamari? fuggetabit, it its devoured. A can of tuna? blink and its gone. Blackened Red Snapper is his favorite.

    generally cod filets as its easy and decent for him.

    have not, I'll give him some to try. seriously the kid would eat seafood and pepperoni pizza everyday if he had his way.

    I love escargot.

    I think the weirdest thing I eat is the jalapeno fold over. Take a piece of white bread, stuff it with jalapenos, and fold it in half. I started doing that when I was in elementary school because I was hungry when I got home from school. My mom dips Oreos in orange juice.*gag*

    I also eat tuna out of the can - nothing on it and cornbread and buttermilk. Mr A thinks those are weird. I don't. The first one is sheer laziness (tuna) and the second (milk-n-bread) is cultural.

    I think the weirdest thing I eat is the occasional corndog although im about 90% vegetarian right now. My dad used to eat cornbread and buttermilk. Watch the tuna...mercury.

    My daughter when she was little would stuff a jalapeno pepper with Altoids, put that inside a mango, bake it, then cover it with Worcestershire sauce and honey. With a dollop of horseradish on the side. yuck.

    My brothers eat pickled pigs feet. They love 'em but I never got up the nerve to taste one.

    my kid loves broccoli. when we go to the local thai place, his dinner of choice is a big platter of fried calamari and a big bowl of steamed broccoli with salt.

    「The Sanscrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident;」.-Sir William Jones

    They appear to be mostly gristle with a little meat. I tried not to look at them. *gag* They stink, too.

    Peanut butter and Miracle Whip sandwich.

    My youngest used to eat butter. Just...butter.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Thread winner. Now that's weird.

    I did too. Still take a nibble when no one's looking. I also ate part of a jar of Flintstones vitamins once. And I used to fake headaches to get baby aspirin and stomach aches to get lemon swiss malox. My mom didn't buy us much candy.

    Oh, and I tried dog food once, too. My brother told me someone needed to taste test the dog food to make sure it wasn't poison and I got voluntold to do it. It was the crunchy kind. I wouldn't have tasted the wet stuff.

    I used to eat dry oatmeal in those little instant packets… You know, the ones with a lot of sugar and cinnamon? Actually, that may not be very weird, now that I think of it.

    Someone mentioned Flintstone vitamins… When I was little, I ate a whole bottle of Flintstone vitamins in one sitting, with my little sister... and even shared some with the dog. My mom told me that they took me to the hospital to have my stomach pumped.
    Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

    I ate about half a bottle and my mom called the doctor. He told her not to give me anymore vitamins. No stomach pumping for me. I just got yelled at. Those things were delicious, though.

    They were! I don't even remember having my stomach pumped but I don't remember a lot of my early childhood.
