Got A Picky Eater?
Don’t blame your kids for turning up their nose at anything green. And don’t blame your cooking either. Instead, blame your genes. Yup- a new study found that kids’ aversions to new foods are mostly inherited. So for those of you who would sneak your broccoli under the table to the dog or wouldn’t go within fifty feet of a mushroom as a kid, don’t be shocked if you see the same traits in your children. But although neophobia (the fear of new foods) may be 78 percent genetic, there’s still an environmental influence. Which is why we want to know: how do you get your kids to eat their veggies or try an unusual dish?
