Lima Beans. I lived with my aunt and uncle when I was a teen and all they asked is that I eat one lima bean as I hadn't tried a lot of different foods. One single lima bean isn't a lot to ask--but it was huge for me. I hid it in my milk.
In retrospect, they would have saved themselves a lot of grief and me too if they had just let it go. I learned to eat all that stuff as an adult - ok not lima beans - but other foods I wouldn't eat as a kid.
Liver and I still can't stand the smell of it to this day. My mother used to make me eat even if I vomited it up and then go back and eat more. Yucccccck. That is one item you will not find in my house EVER.
Cooked broccolli....the smell of it still makes me gag to this day. Mom only made me eat it twice, both times I vomited. She decided I wasn't faking it the 2nd time. The strangest thing though is that eating it raw has no effect on me.
I hated swedes - I think they are called rutabagas in the U.S. We used to get them in school lunch and everyone hated them. There were always loud noises of disgust from all the kids when we saw them. The catering staff used to chop them up with carrots to try to prevent us avoiding them, and we all used to spend ages fishing out the carrots and leaving the swede behind in a little heap. I don't know why they didn't just give up and stop buying them. I've never met anyone in my life who likes them.
my mom used to make this chinese chop suey that I despised....it had scrambled hamburg in a dark sauce with bean sprouts, chinese celery, water chestnuts and peppers and she would serve it over white rice. The bean sprouts would make me gag...lol! I still won't eat it!
My least favorite food as a young girl was cooked spinach. It was slimy and gooey and it was not pleasantly aromatic. Now eons later, I am huge fan of spinach. I like it raw and cooked. Two of my favorite treats are spinach pie and spinach pizza. Yum. Thank you. NOW, I want some.
I have to say I hated brussel sprouts the most as a child. My grandmother would make me eat the horrendous vegetables. But, would you believe as an adult I now like eating brussel sprouts now. It is amazing how our taste-buds change as we get older.
Just for fun: What food did you cry over as a kid?I was showing my husband a picture of my kindergarten class and hold him how Francie and I used to cry in the lunchroom over chocolate pudding that the nuns wanted...
I'm a mother of a 10-year old child who doesn't like to eat at all. I've done everything I can from appetite stimulant, food supplement, to complete milk powder. Still, no effect! Can anyone help, please?
What food you used to eat when you were a child still makes you smile?People use to think of comfort food as main dishes, but there are a lot of desserts, beverages, or even fruits that we associate strongly with a...
