In an interview with The New Potato, David Burtka revealed that he and husband Neil Patrick Harrisā€™ 4-year-old twins think everything you shovel into your mouth three times a day is absolute trash.

OMG! My kids are crazy eaters. They have incredible palates. Gideon eats everything you put in front of him. His passion for cooking and eating good food is in his soul. His favorite foods: Clams, sushi, octopus, grilled pork, steak, Parmesan cheese, ginger, mint, cinnamon and coconut.

The part of the soul where Gideon keeps his passion for cooking and food is probably the same part where you keep your passion for Beef ā€˜n Cheddars from Arbyā€™s.

Harper likes very strong and briny flavors. Some of her favorites: Oysters, sardines, prosciutto, capers, duck liver, miso, and anything chocolate.

Iā€™m going to steal from a 4-year-old and keep ā€œI like strong and briny flavorsā€ in my back pocket; so when someone asks what kind of food I like, I can have something other to say than, ā€œBurgers? Chicken? I donā€™t know, tortillas?ā€
