1.What Is Picky Eating?
You probably picture a stubborn toddler refusing to eat broccoli. But adults can struggle with it, too. They usually have a very limited set of favorite foods, made a certain way. They don’t like to try new foods and might even pass on something familiar if it looks, smells, or tastes different than usual.
2.The Worst Offenders
A survey of nearly 500 picky-eating adults found that bitter and sour foods are especially unpopular. So are slippery or slimy foods, like eggs. Picky eaters tend to skip vegetables. They’re also not fans of foods with “lumps,” like stew. And they don’t like it when foods get mixed together (peas and carrots, for example) or even touch each other on the plate.
