Grandma lost her appetite often. She would start to eat, and then decide she does not want to eat anymore.
Here I am at the age of 6, cutting up grandma's steak. Then I would fed her. She never refused food that I gave to her.
It was our special bond. I also showed her that I was eating it too.
In most families it is the other way around! The grandma cuts the food, and convinces her grandchild to eat.
My parents are lucky because I am not a picky eater!
Maybe it was because I had to be a role model for grandma!
Advice: show your loved one that YOU are enjoying the food. You may have to cut it up for them and offer them a piece.
