Scorpions for Breakfast and Snails for Dinner

On a lighter note, I thought I would share this amusing NYT article on picky eaters. For those of us who aren't in circumstances to provide such exotic food experiences, I think this plug for breastfeeding applies to even the non-Italian mothers among us:

I asked my wife if we deserve credit for rearing such adventurous eaters. Not we, she said. According to Paola, our kids started off right because she breast-fed them, which “opened their taste buds.” I’m not sure that’s scientific. It’s possible Italians are so haughty about their cuisine that they think even their breast milk is superior.
