The Fussy Eater

Mum calls me 'the fussy eater'
Because I won't eat peas,
I find carrots make me queasy
And broccoli makes me sneeze.

We fight like mad at meal times
But I'm allowed to win
'Cause Mum knows I'll eat anything
If it comes in a tin.

Being Picky

Children who are fussy about what they eat end up in an ongoing battle of wills with their parents, but you can guess who usually wins!
