As a child, I was an extremely fussy eater. I can pinpoint several key factors to this:
- My school served us things like tinned tomatoes (yes, served on their own) and stewed cabbage, and we were made to eat it all!
- I was taken to Lowestoft fish market when I was 10. The smell was putrid and now I won’t eat fish.
- My mum never forced me to try new things, I ate separately to my parents so I could eat whatever I wanted.
Since growing a bit, I’ve forced myself to overcome my food fears – trying new fruit (it’s a texture thing for me) and trying to understand why I’ve always avoided things I’ve never even tried before.
So this month I’m asking, what foodie fears do you have or have you had? And do you know what’s caused them?
