Question:

Is it wrong for kids not to eat crust of bread if they only like the inside?

Answer:

Not eating the crust, which would cause it to be thrown out would be bal tashchis and children should be taught to value and not waste food. However it should be done in a nice way, using tact, and not by being overbearing on them, as it says “chanoch lenar al pe darco”.
