    People are so stupid. I'm one of the Boomers and the junk food started with us, pretty much. Formula, jarred baby food, crap baby rice cereal. Then during the 50's I recall the junk introduced on the market, the "sugar" breakfast foods, hamburger helper, etc. My mother was smart enough that she didn't fall for most of it. When I was raising my children I began to notice the advent of "kid food." What in the world is that, except the ultimate in junk? I bought from health food markets, cooked from scratch and only fed my children wholesome food. I follow this program, myself, to this day. Why would anyone follow a program that was dictated by the child? Give them a variety of fruits, veges, meats and they will pick out what they want and need at that given time. When you only offer 1 or 2 items, naturally they are going to fuss. Be imaginative; not stifled, be creative; not lazy. Good god, people, these are your children! Do right by them! Educate yourselves!
