My dog will eat just about anything together, that is when she decides to eat. Some dogs will eat whenever their food is put down, other dogs seem to not actually need to eat. I really do not understand how my dog can eat about 16 calories on average per day, yet burn about 10000 calories per day in activity. She gets a long walk every morning in the park off the leash (which means tearing around chasing things), she plays fetch in the yard every day, she wrestles with me when I get home from work everyday, she does a couple of 1-2 hour MTB rides per week, etc... and she might eat something tomorrow. WTH? I really do not understand how that works.
When she does eat, you can mix some peanut butter, with chicken type canned food, some rice and some stale old dry food together and she will eat it. Or, you can put just one of those things down and when she decides to eat, that is what she eats.
I once convinced my nephew to eat some catfood. It was an interesting experience, for me. Not too enjoyable for him, as it did not stay down. Too bad.
I once entered a hot pepper eating contest, that did not end too well for me, for hours, but that is a completely different story.
Try that method of mixing a bunch of different foods with your kids. It is always fun to see their reaction.
But, why is it that some foods should not be mixed. Like, why wouldn't you put hot tamale sauce on pasta? Why wouldn't you put honey on your vegetables? I hear there are people who do not understand something like a shrimp enchilada. I love the things. I like ketchup on eggs though also.
Here is a list of things that should not be mixed.
- broccoli or cauliflower should never be eaten on pizza.
- frog in a cantaloupe. This is probably one of the weirdest things I was ever asked to eat. In Taiwan, cantaloupe sliced in half with a cooked frog floating in it. Could just be a bad memory, as it was really weird.
- what is a gyro anyway?
- tomato juice with just about anything. Actually, shouldn't tomato juice just be tossed out anyway?
- I don't think a gel pack should mostly ever be eaten. They are pretty good for attracting bees, but not much else.
I like yogurt in my oatmeal, by the way. I once stayed in a Knights Inn, I do not recommend that to pretty much anyone. It is good for putting perspective on things if you stay there for one night per decade, but if you stay there more than that you have just lost your standards.
