I clearly remember the day my mean older daughter, who was in junior high school at the time, told me she liked eggplant. Aubergine? Really? She had dinner at a friend's house and they served breaded eggplant for dinner. She loved it. Children are always more willing to try new foods when eating with their friends. I was thrilled that she liked a new vegetable, and for a while I made breaded eggplant for her at least once a month, only baking the eggplant instead of frying it.
