This is going to be really fun :)
As a parent who has been around other parents and kids, and from reading articles (http://www.kitchendaily.com/2010/03/29/picky-eaters-china/) I know for certain that we become picky eaters because our parents let us. My husband and I don't let our kids get away with being picky, and now, with kids aged 4, 6, and 7, my whole family will eat almost anything. Eating really is a mind game and if we let ourselves think that we don't like something, then we won't. On the other hand, if we let ourselves learn to enjoy different foods, we'll be able to appreciate whatever is put in front of us. Oh, and the parents must be on board with the whole "eat anything" idea or the kids won't do it!

(I just recently decided that if I ever wrote a book, it would be about how to avoid having children that are picky eaters. Good timing guys!)
This is what I gave my husband for his birthday a few weeks ago... All the foods he hates! Dates, Dr. Pepper, and mustard! I enjoyed them. :-)

How dare you I love Dr. Pepper, Lol :)

ok.... I have thought of a few reasons why people are "picky eaters":

The first one is a short one:

We are all characters in a book and the writer (who lives in a world where nobody is picky) thought it was fun to write a book about a world in wich people are picky eaters... :D

the second one is a bit a story:

once there were these aliens. they loved seeing people eat things they don't like. But they had a problem. It's forbiden on the planet where they live to make people dislike food, but this doesn't count on other planets. So there were some aliens who wanted to be rich. And they found out there was life on the planet where we live. So they decided to make a realety soap and other things with wich they could make money (such as vacations to earth). But to make all those things to come true they had to invent something to make people dislike things, but they had to make sure that some people did like those things that the other people didn't like. And there was this smart alien. The alien wanted to make they world that alien lived on a better place. The aliens who wantes to be rich contacted the alien and said that she (it's a female) would make so many people happy if she could invent that. So she invented a machine. the aliens who wanted to be rich used that machine to make people dislike things.
THE END :D

that were my theorys hope you like them :D (and it would be funny if they were true)

I totally agree! :) Family can be a huge influence on our food preferences. :)

Here are my theorys

1. Picky eating happens hen children have a choice as to what they eat. If you are in a large family you are often forced to eat what is prepared so it accomidates everyones taste at the table. If you are an only child (like me), then you get to dictate what you eat based only on your taste. And sice your family only has to accomidate to you, you usually dont branch out into different foods.
