Not eating the crusts

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Ive started to cut the crusts off, if I do he eats more of the bread, if I dont he leaves a good 2 cms around the crust edge too, sometimes he would have two bites out of the sandwich and be done, so off with the crusts it is. :)

Midge generally doesn't eat crusts either. She says they are crunchy (not that crisps are ever an issue !) whether toasted of not. She sometimes has crusts but that tends to be when she has a boiled egg and they get dipped In egg. No way she's going to eat crust off a fresh loaf or baguette! In fact I've forgotten what it's like to eat the soft bits of some breads- I eat crusts and she gets middles!
I do now cut the crusts off because otherwise, as morlyte said, she leaves so much bread claiming its crust.
I used to leave crusts when I was little - think its just a thing kids do. *shrugs*
(actually I then went on to having a side splodge of salad cream to dip crusts in! In fact I sometimes still do that!) :oops:

Huw does this too. However if (when we are running out of bread cos I've been lazy and not bought more in time) I give him a slice of toast made from the end slice - ie all crust - he EATS THE BLOODY LOT!!! Logic? Toddlers? Ha!

I think that the preemptive cutting off of the crusts does avoid drawing attention to it and help the phases pass quicker.

Hmm, well it's not that he doesn't like crusts, today I noticed him picking off bits of the actual crust and eating it. Still left a semicircle. I forgot to try seeing what happens if I give him half a slice, will try to remember tomorrow.
