5. It makes everything taste like ketchup Sure, that’s kind of the goal when your kids refuse to eat roast chicken and you dip it in a bit of tangy-sweet deliciousness. You’re trying to get your children to eat foods that are healthy for them by masking those foods in a familiar flavor–it makes sense. Except for the part where your kids will only learn to like the flavor of ketchup and not the healthy food you are actually trying to get them to embrace. If you want to expand your kids’ palette, try to show your children the amazing flavors out there by encouraging them to eat a variety of foods in their natural, delicious, sauce-free state. Bottom line: ketchup ingredients are not just tomatoes.
