Neophobia

Did you know that toddlers develop a fear of trying new things, and that is one reason why they become fussy eaters! This phobia within us humans developed as we evolved in order to protect us from danger.

We did not try new things because we did not know if it would be safe.

Humans, had to be cautious about new foods discovered while hunting as they did not know if it were a threat.

So now you know it’s not your culinary skills, it’s history, and all will come around with a little encouragement.
