Yes, but you can do this on your own dime, in your own home.
Children should also be shown that when they are sharing a meal that a host has prepared it is not polite or considerate to take a bite and leave the rest over to be tossed away. Kids' portions served to ones children in someone else's home (or at a public venue) should be smallish, especially since there is a good chance that the child might reject the unfamiliar food or be too distracted to eat much. If they want more and there is enough for people to have seconds of course they should have some more.


Due to concerns of over-eating and obesity, I read that the idea of "finish your whole plate" should not be used. It creates a situation where kids are out-of-touch with their satiety levels and lose the ability to judge when they're full.

No one said you must force them to finish what is on their plate.
But that is why you give them a small portion to start with.
If they leave part of it over it's not as glaring or as wasteful as a barely touched adult sized portion.
