Did Your Parents Cut the Crusts Off
Your Sandwiches?

Reader Survey

All right people. This is where it gets real. Where the indulgent parents get separated out from the stern. This is the food divide of one's childhood, the first step on the slippery slope to dessert without dinner, treats before bedtime, keys to the car at 16. Did you parents cut the crusts off your sandwiches? Or did you labor to eat every single one?

And now, the obvious next question: Would you/do you remove the crusts for your own kids?
