(cereal, bread crust, crackers). You can reduce your acrylamide production in baking by keeping the heat lower when baking and taking out bread before crust gets really dark. and by not toasting so not eating crusts can be a healthy choice.
My daughter is wicked smart, so I bet she just knew this instinctively.

My daugther does not eat her crust. When she started school this year, I went through the trouble of cutting the crusts off her sandwiches. However, on very busy mornings, that proved to be a a little bit too time consuming (too busy pumping at night to prepare lunches ahead of time). My sister clued me in to the flower shaped sandwich cutter that Williams-Sonoma sells, and now I make her adorable, flower shaped, crustless sandwiches in no time! :

In general, not for homemade bread but yes for store-bought. I do care, but I am not going to set up food battles over it. He's 2 -- there will be time for rational discussion later.

My grandpa cut my sandwich for me once into a rectangle shape and I wouldn't eat a sandwich unless it was rectangle shaped after that. I absolutely refused and it is something my mom still teases me about. My dd wants her sandwiches cut like triangles because that is what her grandma does. It is funny how much shape and texture influence taste.

I've always been told that we shouldn't, because they also attract animals. I have no idea what animals they'd attract, now that I think about it...it's not like we're lacking in squirrels and outdoor mice as it is.

Haha I just read through all 10 pages to see why it was so long... I was expecting some HUGE conflict about how eating/not eating crusts was going to massively damage our children in some way...

I personally don't care if they eat them or not...I LOVE crusts (especially pizza!), so I will eat them

Sometimes ds eats his crust, sometimes he doesn't, and I really don't care. I don't support the whole "clean your plate" idea and I can't imagine being irritated about my children not liking something. It doesn't irritate me that dh hates beans, or that I hate hate hate milk. So whether or not ds likes bread crusts, that is his own business.

I don't understand it being a waste either. Like I said before, I don't drink milk--but that doesn't mean I pour myself a nice big slimy glass just so I can take it to the sink and dump it out. We simply use the milk for something else. Likewise, if ds doesn't want bread crusts I will just cut 'em off and toss them in the big bowl of dry scrap bread. They will get used eventually for something.

Now if ds will only eat his crustless sandwich cut into triangles every third Thursday of the month with purple jelly on the left side and red jelly on the right, that is a whole different ball of wax.

My oldest does not eat his crusts. His younger brother eats them for him. It doesn't bother me, except when he begs and begs for me to cut the crusts off for him. I'm just not going to add to my meal prep time when he can just not eat them.

Heck, I'd be thrilled if DD1 would even EAT a sandwich; I can't imagine getting worked up over a simple issue like crusts. Besides, in our house we have a very important mechanism in place for preventing food waste-- DH. Anything anybody else doesn't want, he eats.
