we generally don't eat crust at my house. and we (minus anthony) don't eat the heels of the bread. i don't like them and i'm certainly not going to force my kids to eat them. and i know there are starving children in africa but i don't think my stale bread heels are going to do them much good.
however, there are starving ducks at the pond we can help. and help we do.
look at the smile on this face. why deprive him of this joy by forcing him to clean his plate?
