    What food did you hate as a child?

    I was making my favorite stewed tomatoes for dinner and remembered how much I hated them as a child. I got to thinking about other things I disliked and now love, shrimp, fish, and cauliflower. I still hate Brussel sprouts. What foods did you not like as a child and love now?

    Around age 40 I started liking liver fried with onions and bacon. Yum! Anything tastes good when it is fried in bacon.

    Green peppers - horrid!!! Used to hate anything with onions in it/on it - but now like them. I have already told my family that if they feed me green peppers in my "senior years" in a nursing home, etc. that I will come back and haunt them.

    Hated avocados as a child (and my grandparents had a HUGE avocado tree -wish I had that beauty today), now I almost can't go a day without them. Still think creamed corn and Spam should be banned from the planet!

    I hated almost everything. The only meats I liked were lamb chops (can't stand lamb now) and liver! Today many years later if a restaurant has liver and onions and/or bacon on the menu, I look no further, still one of my favorites.

    Tomatoes, liver, onions, peppers (all kinds), spinach, grapefruit, zucchini, peas (due to a reason), eggplant, artichoke, and a plethora of other veggies and some fruits.
    I'm so close to the first finish line, yet I feel so far away.

    I hated pumpkin which is served as a vegetable here in Australia. Love it now. Can't think of anything else and these days I eat just about anything. That's why I'm 92 kg. Love food, love to eat.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Hated liver and still do. Mom also cooked brains and scrambled eggs. You had to eat what was cooked so I had vegetables, bread, and milk when liver or brains was cooked.

    Liver!! Love onions. Mom even would cook beef heart. One evening she had made it and Dad was late coming home from work.(at least that is what he told us - maybe he didn't like beef heart either!) She put that heart on the table and my sisters and I (5 of us) "cut" that heart up so bad, Mom couldn't even eat it. I won't eat the skin when we have hogmaw - I guess I have something against organ meats! But I don't like venison either.

    Raw oysters! I can't get past how that look. I don't know if I'd like the taste or not.

    Creamed chip Beef. It actually gags me. None of that in my house. The other thing was being made to sit until I ate it. I never made my kids and grandkids do this. Just if they didn't eat there were no snacks.
