Below are posts from Cooking Manager for February 14-27:
In Why You Should Finish Everything on Your Plate, I explain why you should scrape plates to save food and make cleanup easier. Perhaps the title was misleading. I don’t think that children should finish their food despite not being hungry. Instead they should start with smaller portions.
