Here's How You Can Come Out Of Your Picky Eating Habit

May 22, 2008
If you are into stressing about your kids eating behavior, it means you are a lot choosier about your food than you need to be. Many think that only kids are picky eaters. However, there are a lot more adults who are picky eaters than you would imagine. Kids may grow out of their kid eating habits, but those who don't will persist until a lifetime. Parents ensure their kids eat well, but strategies kids eaters is something that just naturally happens. You may live with it, or you may grow out of it.

If it were not about health, no one would have worried about simply secrets for enjoy eating. But the fact is, this habit restrains you from getting all the nutrients that you should. If you do not consume a particular food, you are getting deficient in the nutrients that it contains. For example, if you do not like the green leafy vegetables, you are developing a deficiency of vitamins B complex and C, which may cause problems like poor mental development, poor absorption of foods in the body and scurvy.

You are losing out on a lot if you are a picky eater. But what can you do if you don't like the taste of the food itself? You may not have natural tastes for that particular food, but that does not mean you cannot develop some acquired tastes either. If you make an attempt, you can start eating and probably even relishing the foods that you don't like. Let's see how that works.

If you do not like a food, it doesn't mean you should not buy it either. When you go to the mall, try to fill out your bag with all kinds of foods there are. Yes, get even those foods that you never tried because you felt they will not suit your tastes. Cut down on the junk foods; they can take you further away from healthy foods. If you get too used to junk foods, you will be more of a picky eater. So, next time you are at a mall, get all kinds of foods.

Now how does this help? There's a definite psychological tendency not to waste anything that you have spent money for. Since you have bought these foods, you will want to finish them. It's that simple, you will end up eating the foods you once detested, even if it is in small quantities.

You can help yourself by looking at new recipes and methods to prepare the foods in your hate list. You can even use what they call as unhealthy cooking methods initially till you acquire the taste. Soon, you will get used to the food and not mind it that much.
