SoCS ~ November 26th

Today’s prompt:  “on your/my plate”
Although not a believer in wasting food, I disagreed
with a back-in-the-day mealtime rule often followed in
many households.
‘Finish everything on your plate‘.
Why?
Similar to adults, children’s appetites differ on a daily basis.
Common sense . . .
Place a small portion of each food item on the child’s
plate. Allow them to ask for seconds.
If the child doesn’t finish their meal, then no dessert after
dinner.
World hunger was often an excuse used to make a child feel
guilty.
In later years a visit to a one-price dine-in restaurant left me
near state of shock.
Why?
I watched as young children accessed the buffet table and filled their
plates sky high with food.
Sadly, unable to eat this amount of food or a dislike of their selections
the plate soon met with the trash.
Perhaps the parents of these children should have enforced that rule
of ‘finish everything on your plate‘.
