"If you finish your food, then..."

Just a fun topic to talk about. All of us at one point in life as children had a tough time finishing food or eating veggies. I suppose we had better things to do like play, right? So, as always, parents would give reasons as to why you should finish. My mother used to say that if I finished all my food, I would grow to be a beautiful girl or that I'll be strong as superman or I'll be rich! And other times, she'd say that the food will cry if I don't eat them (which gets me every time.) Haha.
So what did you parents used to say? And if you are a parent, do you find yourself saying the same thing? Because frankly, I find myself saying the same thing to my four year old cousin. :P
