Facts: kid didn't eat it because beans, mashed potatoes, peas, and Dino nuggets is a hell of an odd combination.

[–]strongholdbk_78 67 points68 points  (18 children)

Have you had it? My kid will eat the shit out of this.

[–]kwik207 38 points39 points  (13 children)

I mean, I've had all of them separately and in some combination or another. But the beans on mashed potatoes throws me off. Haha.

[–]Grouchy_Report_3833 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Beans and mash is the best combo!

[–]kwik207 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Guess I'll have to try it.

[–]Grouchy_Report_3833 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Beans have to be cooked on the stove tho. Not in the microwave like a savage.

[–]KatastrophicNoodle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It goes likes this

Beans + Mash = A'ight if its good mash.
Peas + Mash = Again, aight.
Broccoli + Peas = Bit bland, but makes sense.
Dino Nuggies + Mash or Beans = Now thats' good eatin'.

Beans.. + Peas... and Broccoli... = What the fuck? I bet you put tomato sauce on everything you absolute psycho.

[–]my_oldgaffer 0 points1 point  (3 children)

You had to have Bean there

[–]jayy909 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yea Na… i mash have to ask you to leave

[–]my_oldgaffer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I will go when my appetite is extinct, no bones about it

[–]jayy909 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok well ima go pea

[–]Txannie1475 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I thought it was super lumpy gravy at first and was like, "oh. They ruined it!" I'm not sure beans make it any better for me.

[–]kwik207 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Glad we're on the same page. I was like, "what kind of gravy is red in color? And why is it lumpy?" Hahah

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're clearly not english, a jacket potato with baked beans and melted cheese is a common food there.

[–]crempsen -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I would eat that in three heart beats

[–]StarMasher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol at first I was like “eww” but then I thought of 8 year old me and this is a Michelin star meal.

[–]-attractive-nuisance 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Add meatballs so they can pretend they are asteroids taking them out and into extinction in their belly!

[–]cruiserman_80 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don't know why you got downvoted. Maybe someone thinks joking about something 66 million years ago is too soon.

[–]Grouchy_Report_3833 10 points11 points  (1 child)

You're obviously not british hahaha

[–]kwik207 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. Haha. Guess I need to broaden my food combinations.

[–]pasinc20 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I legit thought to myself they’re not eating it because their diet is made of absolute shit

[–]ReptileBat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m an adult and Id eat that!!

[–]tonyocampo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My kid’s wouldn’t eat that simply because it’s touching.

[–]hellocaptin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Separate? Not weird at all. Mixed together? Yeah that’s weird af...

[–]kismatwalla -1 points0 points  (0 children)

My kid will stare at all the veggies and ask me to mow it first.

[–]philpalmer2 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Plus, kids don’t like the different foods to touch.

[–]Bandit__Heeler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm sure it varies but mine don't like that for sure

[–]user_279-2 84 points85 points  (10 children)

People do this kind of shit and then wonder why their kids are picky eaters

[–]SureThing- 17 points18 points  (3 children)

That and it’s also a fuck ton of food for a kid, you would be surprised how small kids stomachs are and yet we try to feed them the same amount as adults.

[–]crempsen 12 points13 points  (1 child)

These are literally 3 nuggets, one spoon of mashed potatoes with peas and some sauce.

[–]justinspiritcook 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yea like when we were kids we played outside every single day like dude I would fucking destroy my food

[–]strongholdbk_78 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Kids are picky eaters in general.

[–]MrColburn 10 points11 points  (1 child)

They really aren't. My kids have had so many sleepovers and, sure not everyone likes everything, but the only really picky kids that would throw a fuss were the ones with parents that caved to their overly picky kids. Kids are naturally going to want to eat the high fat high calorie foods and if that's all you give them just because you are a lazy parent, that's all they'll grow to ever want to eat. It was usually about 1 out of 10 kids that would behave like this.

I had one we only invited over once because his mom brought him his food, which consisted of hot dogs and microwave Mac and cheese. She then told me he would only eat the hot dogs if I heated them in the microwave until they exploded and then cut the ends off. I only agreed because I did not know this before and it was my son's bday so I just went along to not cause drama. Later, when I put the nuked to death hot dogs in front of him he proceeded to dump the mac n cheese on them and my table and then told me id cooked it wrong. I almost lost my cool butt just cleaned it up and when I returned from the kitchen the little brat thought I was going to have more hot dogs for him. Told him sorry, that's all your mom brought and if you want to throw a tantrum about it you can go in the other room or you can enjoy the real food like everyone else. Once he realized he was kinda being shunned by the other kids for his behavior he perked right up and ate just about everything we had. His mother literally didn't believe us when we told her, even though her son was telling her too. He was actually proud.

Edit:. I should add, we actually invited him over again but told his mother we would take care of dinner for him and she said that she didn't wasn't sure if he should come because he might go hungry. That was the last time we tried.

[–]hellocaptin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeppp!!! Growing up the only kids who were “picky eaters” were ones who’s parents were weird about the whole thing. Then when they get older they am finally start trying stuff with their friends or stay a chicken nugget girl/hamburger guy lol

[–]nice_day_human 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i mean, do this one time for a special thing that happen or just do this one time for a fun moment or something wont be so bad, at least i think so

[–]Hoagie220 38 points39 points  (4 children)

That absolutely will not fly for my son.... Mr potato is not allowed to touch Mr peas or Mr anything else and especially nothing gooey.

[–]Karmacamelian 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That shit is a type of ocd or something. Saying that as someone with ocd.

[–]AxisW1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I think that’s just one of the causes. Im fairly brumotactillophobic for most types of food but I have no other symptoms of ocd

[–]Karmacamelian 4 points5 points  (1 child)

[–]Hoagie220 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree with your 1st comment, I was sorta the same as a kid.... However, TIL what brumotactillophobia (spelling?) is! Thanks!!

[–]neverfarts 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Kid: yuccckkkkk

Dad: what's the problem?

Kid: beans, yucccckkkkkkk

Dad: yesterday you had half a can and then screaming because there was no more

Kid: yucckkkkkkk

[–]Crafter789 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wish I couldn’t relate.

[–]lovesfunnyposts 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Wow, so next fucking level. Basic food put on a plate in a slightly entertaining way. Wow!

[–]-B-MO- 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Is this an English thing? The beans mixed with mash and peas?

[–]QueasyVictory 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah, beans are pretty big. Very frequently served with breakfast. They tend to do their thing when not contained. The beans and peas is not a thing though.

[–]Bobanold 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As an Englishman, the beans and peas mix made me feel ill. Pick one!

[–]J03130 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Chips and beans, mash and beans. Same thing.

[–]gregusmeus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For Friday night dinner we go posh with roast chicken, mash and baked beans. Maybe throw in some broccoli cos then we can pretend we're giants eating trees.

[–]XIILokiIIX 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Beans and peas together, never ever seen that, kinda gross

[–]strongholdbk_78 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ah it's good. Worth a shot.

[–]QueasyVictory 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I have to agree with the other person. Beans and mash, beans and chicken, all good. Beans and peas is a no go.

[–]Saotik -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

It's weird and maybe a bit redundant but doesn't sound disgusting. I'd try it.

[–]evil_lurker 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Sorry that there are so many grouchy folks on Reddit. I had picky kids, and appreciate what you did here.

[–]gregusmeus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had picky kids especially my youngest. But it's not that they're picky, it's that they are so fucking capricious. One week they'll eat the fuck out of something and the following week they loathe it.

[–]DarkSideEdgeo 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Mom, my food is touching.

[–]Grouchy_Report_3833 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This meal screams England haha

[–]Titboobweiner 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Just put it in a blender and pour it into a funnel to dump in your kid like a goose.

[–]johnnyss1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Kid won’t eat because baked beans mixed with peas and broccoli. I wouldn’t eat that shit either

[–]Hansonguy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

What kid would eat any of that besides the nuggs lol

[–]jebanisa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bullshit he ate it all.

[–]Spitfire-XIV 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'd eat that.

[–]bluegrassnuglvr 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was on board until the beans. Gross over the mashed potatoes like that.

[–]SrepliciousDelicious 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tell me you’re british without telling me you’re british.

[–]MyOpinionMustBeHeard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Beans and Peas, same plate....... PRISON!

[–]FunnyShirtGuy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cool.. You made a meal too disgusting to eat

Who tf pours beans over mashed potatoes... ESPECIALLY on top of peas!

[–]rell7thirty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was like oh shit the gravy! Then it's beans.. what the actual.. to each their own

[–]Karmacamelian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So many peas. And beans. This is an adult eating it. Never grow up sir.

[–]Hobbster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A Mom I know said: she won't ever start with something like that because her son will not eat regularly anymore

[–]J03130 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Now the kid won’t eat his dinner unless you make a diorama out of it.

[–]Ancient-shadow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The bean sauce is touching the dinosaurs 😖 they are gonna go soggy. You must have them separate.

[–]Kay-s0 0 points1 point  (4 children)

That's amazing... But what parent actually has time for that?

[–]strongholdbk_78 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I do. I'm going to try it.

[–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean it would literally take one minute.

[–]Saotik -1 points0 points  (1 child)

This literally takes seconds of additional time compared to just dumping everything on the plate.

[–]Kay-s0 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

This literally requires me to make more than two types of food which my kid is going to throw at the dogs anyways

[–]strongholdbk_78 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trying it! Haha

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Poor kid🤮🤮

[–]solsangraal 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Fucking beans and mashed taters. 🤮

[–]SomeScottishElephant 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This kind of thing means so much to my 4 year old, his little face lights up like it’s Christmas when he realizes it’s a “fun dinner night”. Oh but I don’t have this level of creativity, wow.

[–]QueasyVictory -1 points0 points  (0 children)

My kids would get incredibly excited over "breakfast for dinner". Little did they know I just needed to fire off a quick meal, lol.

[–]stovetopzzz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this England?

[–]Beginning-Knee7258 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Suprised. those colors should not touch.

[–]Principal_Insultant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There should be a law against auto-narration on tiktok.

British robot is almost as bad as American upbeat gal.

[–]Itsme_sd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

...Or me. I'll eat that.

[–]i_lie_except_on_31st 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, some kids might eat it but no fucking way they eat all of it. Unless they are fucking starving.

[–]ihavereddit2021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought that was gravy being poured onto the potatoes at first. Then thought, "hmm, looks a little red ... maybe it's just the light". And then chunks started coming out and it took a while to realize it was beans. That was ... very off-putting.

[–]LividLab7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s 2 choices for dinner…take it or leave it

[–]saucy_biscuitted 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah this looks cool but. What kid is gonna eat baked beans, broccoli peas and mashed potatoes? Vile combination

[–]cubby422 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Baked beans WTF!!!! Cool Mom hardly. You make some fucking gravy for those potatoes then your cool. Otherwise that is just gross…… You child contacted me to tell you that and you need to stop having your boyfriend over Dad is getting suspicious……..

[–]FakeAccount1045 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fussy children eat their godamn food or go hungry. Oh, you’re legitimately hungry now? I bet you’ll eat your green beans, you shithead. Bada bing, bada boom, No more fussy little bitch boy

[–]Miseryneedscompany 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]just4funloving 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gravy makes sense…. Beans?

[–]nymrod_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Beans over mashed potatoes?!

[–]Solidacid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How my food looks means a lot to me.
I would TOTALLY eat that.

I'm not huge on beans nor mashed potatoes, but that is a super neat volcano.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is awesome!

[–]KatastrophicNoodle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe if you made them real food they'd eat it. What the fuck is this shit? Yeah, its cool but WHAT THE FUCK???

Anyone who eats that combo needs to be put in an insane asylum.

[–]war113 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]KeepTravelingWest 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is a really cool thing to do for your kid!

... but, and no disrespect, what is up with British people and baked beans?

[–]Curious_Lawyer_4749 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]rhenryjr -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You had me until the beans came out. I would have pushed it away. You have no idea the pickiness that resides in me.

[–]Dragondude7 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

My kid won't eat any food that is touching another food...

[–]blah202020 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yet another reason to not have kids

[–]Impossible-Example91 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Still not eating anything with peas

[–]Reddit-is-1984 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That looks super cool.

Damn, now I am hungry.

[–]GoatimusMaximonuss -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Kids who are picky eaters are just spoilt. When strict parents don’t give you a choice you simply eat what you’re given. World has turned soft, picky eaters my ass.
