what happens to determine what kids like?

My children all dislike the opposites, one eats cucumber like apple, the other can't bear it. One loves fish, especially tuna, but the other won't touch fish and yet when she was little she used to eat seafood sticks like most children would eat sweets but won't eat fish now, strange, but as you said in earlier response our taste buds do change when we are older. I never used to like hot spicy food when young and yet I love it now so that may determine somethings though. Perhaps it is slightly genetic, who knows, wseet from the mums side, savoury from the dads or vice versa. Ellie :D

I don't know how old your kids are but when mine was younger they would eat anything that didn't eat they first. Now that they are older they are very picky. My oldest hates potatoes but when he was younger he'd eat them. He likes hamburger and mac & cheese together. My youngest likes both but not to fond of putting them together. And loves pototoes. Or they like it one day and hate it the next. Kids are just weird. When I was a kid I hated vegetables. But now I eat them. With me it was probably because my parents tried pushing them on me.
