Our Eating Habits: I have been a picky eater since I realized what I needed to put in my body and what I had to refuse. I was 5 years old when I first realized I was overweight. Actually, I was born overweight – my mom expected a baby boy so a baby girl was a surprise to everyone, including her.
While all my friends ate anything their parents gave them, I knew I wouldn’t eat food that could harm my body. My parents have always been angry at me because of my strange eating habits, even now my mom gets mad when I say I don’t eat meat, or fish, or buckwheat, or cottage cheese. That’s my choice and I am proud of it. If you are in the same boat, and you wonder if something is wrong with you, here’s why it is absolutely okay to be a picky eater.
