Are they born or made?

I am talking about picky eaters here. My son has decided after a few meals that he doesn't like peas. Now he is only 8 months old. But he will now quickly turn his head. We didn't have this problem with my daughter until last year when she began kindergarten. I was sure it was peer pressure until my son started the head dodge. Any thoughts from the parents out in mylot?

I did that to my own son once by giving him some sweet meals. Vanilla pudding and stuff. Really, it came in the babyfood section. My wife sure looked at me crosswise when he decided he didn't really like veggies.

I think taste buds are different with everyone. Some people do not like a certain food, but grow to really like them as their taste buds change. Some people like certain things and later find that they no longer do anymore also.

Well, my sister loved green beans till she was about 14 months and we haven't been able to get her to eat them since. Same way with peas,sweet potato, carrots and squash. Once she started getting tastes of the good stuff like eating what others had we couldn't get her to go back eating the good healthy foods. I have been trying with baby carrots for awhile but someone else at a party said yuck and now she won't eat them. I think it is a bit all both mixed in.

I think that it is made. Kids like to "follow" siblings/ and or friends, peers. If they don't like something neither do they. My cousin had a friend who was a couple years older then her. One day she said her favorite color is Red, so suddenly my cousin's interest went from pink to red. Kids are too cute!
