When K refuses to eat his food,
I say "You must eat more, so that you will grow tall and can reach the pedal of the bicycle / buy new golf clubs / eat ice cream."
Now when he sees a bicycle riding past, he nods his head, gives me the 'I got to have this bike very badly look'. And then says "Eat more".
When he tries to press the lift's button and cannot reach it, he looks at me and says "Eat More"
When he sees another kid eating ice cream, he nods his head, gives me the 'I really want to eat the ice cream' look. And then adds "Nex Time," followed by the words "Eat more".
He sure knows he needs to eat more during his mealtime. Well at least his spirit seems to be willing, but somehow the flesh is weak.
