My crazy grandmother (who had me almost full-time until I was 4) raised me to believe that green vegetables were bad for you because she did not tolerate some vegetables very well. Seriously! Can you imagine telling a 3-year-old (and yes, I can remember) to pick out the vegetables because they're bad for you! :ugh: Well, now, I know that vegetables are good for you, but can't bring myself to eat them because I've got a negative association with them from the crazy dragon lady.
So good for you for trying not to project your food issues to the kid or the pug.
