As every parent knows, kids can be remarkably fickle when it comes to food. Seemingly on the slightest whim dietary requirements can drastically change, now your little bundle of joy will only eat foods that are orange, for example.

Luckily, for the majority of kids fussy eating is just a phase. We all know that it just comes with the territory, and we need to find creative and funny ways to get around it.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of hilarious tweets from parents in the midst of dinnertime dramas, if you’ve had kids yourself you’ll be sure to raise a knowing smile (or grimace). Check them out below and tell us your experiences in the comments!

Boy, I’ll say it counts. But there’s always the old “Fine, you can go to bed hungry.”
