I thought he was just being ridiculous, but I did some research, and it's a very real disorder known as food neophobia. People with this disorder actually have a psychological block when it comes to trying new foods. It genuinely fills them with terror.

    I don't pretend to understand it. I absolutely love trying new foods. The more complex the flavors, the better. But I've learned that it's not a matter of telling a picky eater to just "grow up". A lot of the time, these people need therapy. It's not healthy at all.

    Oh picky eater as in not willing to try things not like they have tried it and simply don't like a lot of things?

    It is if you can't be specific then you end up with things you don't want or need. Now getting people to understand that with out them enlisting the peanut gallery by saying that is oddly specific is a dilemma i have yet to figure out how to get around.

    Ps I'm having a smart day which makes me happy and that's not controversial

    no like adults who think vegetables are yucky and eat chicken tenders or well done hamburgers everyday.

    Some of those people are probably on the autism spectrum (not necessarily to a diagnosable level). My son doesn't like mixed together foods (sandwiches, soups, casseroles, pretty much anything in a sauce) so he pretty much eats ingredients only, except for macaroni and cheese which is his favorite thing in the world. Fortunately, fresh fruits and vegetables are fine with him and that's a lot of what he eats. I suspect when he's an adult he will live on fresh fruits and vegetables, macaroni, plain meats, yogurt, and cheese, like he does now.

    I have a friend who's synesthetic and doesn't like mixing food because "the patterns blur". She's also incredibly stubborn, and has responded to people's thoughts on her picky eating by doubling down on her pickiness. (8 fix problems?)

    @chickpea I'm mostly with you on this though. Either they need to mature, or they need to stop being so goddamn boring. Depends on the picky eater in question.

    It especially bothers me when people say shit like "It's because I'm a supertaster". Guess what? Some of the most adventurous eaters I know are supertasters. Strong sense of taste =/= picky and boring eating.

    and it's nice enough to

    you?

    I'm a sort of picky eater. I just have a big issue with texture, and if something is of that texture I just can't do it. I get physically sick, vomiting, all of that. My parents used to force me to try all different types of food, but I have been told that they stopped when I was young because I would have such dramatic reactions that they figured that it had to be somewhat out of my control. There would be no way I would do that to myself by choice.

    So yeah, to an extent I don't really think that picky eating is a choice. Maybe if it is introduced correctly, under ideal circumstances-whatever they would be, you could get a different result. But actually I just don't know everything or anything that is really behind it enough to judge.
