Did you know that picky eating is actually linked to a genetic factor that influences one’s willingness to try and eat new foods? It’s called neophobia. Depending on your genetic factors, some foods might taste off to you. Some foods that other people love might taste bitter to you causing you to avoid eating those foods.

Other parents eat the same things all the time and your kids see that too.
