    Yes, but making them finish what they have teaches a bad habit. Even if at first it leads to some waste.

    If anything you should try to re-use what they don't eat, teaches them making the most out of things/frugality.

    Yeah, my parents did the "if you don't eat it at dinner, you're getting it for breakfast" thing. I learned really quick only to take as much as I could eat.

    Borges attributes it to Bernard Shaw's Guide to Socialism in his essay A New Refutation of Time, but this is Borges we are talking about so, it could easily be something he made up.

    Between our dogs and pretty much my fathers and my love for leftovers nothing really is wasted. And somethings we make extra of for later. Especially homemade chili, pasta sauce and the like. Freeze up single servings worth so they can be used as lunches later.

    In fact I am making Japanese curry tonight for myself and planning on making enough for three meals over the next couple of days.
