Frances only likes bread and jam for breakfast and won't even try anything else. Finally her mother gives up and lets Frances eat toast and jelly for every breakfast, lunch and supper.

Here's a classic that parents and grandparents might remember, but still rings true today regarding "picky eaters" and growing up.
