Question to Moms

I have a question as to how people would handle this situation:

You and your family are at a friends house for dinner and she's cooked all day a fantastic beef stew.  My son, comes over and whispers to me, tells me he doesn't like it.  Her feelings would be hurt that he didn't like it (it's happened before).  Now what would you do?  He's hungry, can't eat what she's worked really hard for, and I don't want to hurt her feelings.


  1. I would just ask him to try it. If he does not as a Mom we all know that our children do not like certain food. Just let her know it is a wonderful meal but you are not sure that he really likes that kind of soup. I do not think she would get mad.

  2. I agree with the last post by Amy. Anyone with kids knows how picky they are!

  3. I would ask him to try it too and maybe ask him to take a certain number of bites. I would tell the mom that he is a picky eater and that you are working on it! Good luck! Now following from MBC!

  4. I'm kind of a stickler for eating what you're given. I'd have him eat some and politely excuse himself. A "no thankyou portion" if you will.
