Picky kids, followup post

A while back I wrote a sorta silly post about picky kids. http://greensmoothiegirl.com/2010/06/18/what-do-you-do-with-picky-kids/ Actually, I’ve written quite a few of them in the past 3 years, some more serious. http://greensmoothiegirl.com/2008/05/01/the-nutritionally-recalcitrant-spouse-part-one-of-four/ Reader Alice Osborn posted this response, which I think warrants front-page attention.
