Diddy....yes you're right. They did say that. I couldn't remember. Her family seemed very well balanced and very supportive of her.

Thankfully all the children made some sort of progress throughout the programme.

Marmite? Not one of my favourites.....I must admit i was a fussy eater as a child. I didn't like drinking milk although I love it now.

I eat just about everything - love offal, liver, brains, kidneys, black pudding etc.
I dont eat much of any sweet stuff - only chocolate I can eat is the pure dark bitter stuff!

Red S, I think they said that girl was diagnosed with Autism at an early age, I care for twins who are autistic and their main diet is "Marmite on toast" and "Crisps", so I could see where she was coming from.

Broad Beans ,Tripe,and kidneys (Iused to be Kidney Dialysis Nurse)!!!.I'm sure there are plenty more things that I wouldn't touch.

Diddy & Devon, yes, particularly the little boy with the bottles, we all said it was the mum's problem from the outset. Did you see how he tucked into his food so easily - he hadn't got the problem at all.

I wondered about the girl that wouldn't eat anything but chocolate and wotsits how she got into that position in the first place. She obviously had a problem as she struggled eating that toast.

I had a problem when I was a veggie as I did not like the taste of tofu and soya, have allergies to nuts and am not overkeen on pulses, oh and I am lactose intolerant.
But avocados are still my most hated food, I know they are supposed to be good for you but yuk.
I am with you on the marmite Maz.


Eldrick Report 21 Jun 2008 13:21

tofu, quorn, soya and nuts (allergic to the latter)

After that....bring it on!

That programme was stupid. Those parents didnt have any common sense at all.


Diddydoris Report 21 Jun 2008 13:13

Couldn't believe the mother who was still giving her 4yr old up to 20 bottles of milk a day, and still in nappies and still demanding bottles twice during the night!!! Sorry, but its the parents. And as for the 2 trying to force feed the 2yr old, no wonder he wouldn't eat. Mine, if they didn't eat the food in front of them, it didn't get eaten. They soon learned, I don't run a restaurant, it's what's in front of you or nothing!!

Did anyone see the programme the other day about children that wouldn't eat? One little girl would only eat chocolate and wotsits. She was gradually pushing herself to eat toast but it was a struggle.


Quinsgran Report 21 Jun 2008 09:30

For those with babies.

They say you have to offer a baby a food 16 times before you give up
Eventually they will take it or so they say.

Who are "they"is what I would like to know

Perhaps thats why some hate certain foods

My dislikes have to be butter beans, broad beans, baked beans, lentils, pearl barley, pudding rice, semolina, parsnips, turnips.......I eat most of everything else.........don't really eat puddings or sweet things and dislike dark much so that my Uncle gave me a big box of dark chocolates after I had a baby, and I passed them all round the ward.......they thought I was great giving away all that chocolate.....

Isn't that weird about dark chocolate? I don't like it because it's bitter -- but I'm a nontaster.

Apparently what it is, is that tasters are very sensitive to sweet. It's the sugar in milk chocolate that turns them off.

Wouldn't that be wonderful ... to be turned off by sugar ...

My best friend and I have cooked dinners for each other for years. It's always a challenge. She likes fish and eats her meat rare; fish makes me puke and I like my meat nicely cooked, thank you. I love extremely hot and spicy; she can't eat it. For dessert, I'd take my grandmother's rhubarb pie with its white sugar custard base and its brown sugar crumble and eat it til I was ill; she wants some thing that tastes to me like eating cardboard with paste and paint on it -- yeah, a chocolate éclair. Bleah.

Hey Mama Rambo. ;) I decided to make chicken liver pâté once, for some bizarre reason. The recipe said to blend the chicken livers, in a blender.

What it didn't make clear is that you're supposed to cook them first.

Bad enough to look at. Try cleaning that blender after.
