As I have mentioned before, I don’t like to make separate dishes for kids; whatever we serve the adults we also serve the kids.  They don’t always love it, but we make them try it, and it’s all they get.  The hope is that they will learn to enjoy a wide variety of foods )and learn to react politely when they’re served something they don’t enjoy).  I am frequently surprised at the things they like and the things they don’t.  (My oldest daughter won’t touch mashed potatoes which I really struggle to understand.)  Tonight, my six-year-old son ate what was on his plate and then ate the rest of the fennel.  All of it.  By itself.  Not what I would have predicted, but I’m now looking forward to making this again soon.
