I guess my question about this approach is, isn't that type of statement a
value judgment? And if so, doesn't it imply that you don't think the
student should be eating it? It seems like it's just a more polite way of
saying, "eeewwww," which seems like it might discourage the child from
eating it, at least at school or near you.
