Dealing with a child who is a picky eater is tough enough, but trying to satisfy the tastes of a picky eater at Thanksgiving is nearly impossible.

Click to listen to the CNN Radio podcast:

Thirteen-year-old Mitchell Lefreve is one such picky eater. “I like cheese and meat,” said Lefreve. That’s pretty much it. But it gets even more interesting. He’ll eat cheese pizza, but not with meat on it. He’ll eat French fries but with cheese, hot dogs also with cheese, no other condiment.

A Filipino family feast

Thanksgiving is an American holiday, but because so many of us have roots in other countries, there are many international dishes on Thanksgiving tables. CNN Radio’s Jim Roope was invited to a Filipino family Thanksgiving celebration and discovered the addition of Lechon, roasted pig, next to the turkey, stuffing and sweet potato pie.

“All [Filipino] festivities are religious in nature so we always have an offering, a Lechon at the table,” said Nora Hizon, who immigrated to the U-S 40 years ago.” “We have the turkey, but we also have the Lechon,” she said.

After some coaxing, Jim Roope finally agrees to taste the Lechon. Listen to the audio player below to hear what happens.
