Foods that children loathe

accreditation
"Mommy, I want chippies! Not like that. I want tomato sauce. The other tomato sauce. And I want a fork." When children get fussy around dinner time it can drive a perfectly sane parent crazy.

What's even worse is when you prepare an entire meal and the little food connoisseur decides that he suddenly doesn't like mince. And that when you've just whipped together a lasagne.

We asked our Facebook fans what foods their children hate.

They had some pretty strange responses...


Scrambled and poached eggs. Unless I coat it in yoghurt... - Rukeya Khan Parker

Milkshake - go figure! she drinks milk, eats yoghurt, eats ice cream but just can't bring herself to drink milkshake. - Fairuz Gaibie

Anything that is NOT a noodle! - Charlene Purdon

My eldest won't eat veggies and the youngest won't touch meat! Go figure... - Rebecca Van Eeden

Anything with colour - only starchy white food! - Mellissa September
