Wow. You're probably malnourished.
Probably though when they've done a full blood count and I'm not anaemic and urine test which measure minerals which was normal. My sodium is always low for some reason though, despite high sodium consumption.

Are you suffering from some kind of eating disorder or this purely a choice?
I suppose it sounds like Avoidant Restrictive Eating Disorder, though I've never went to the Dr about it. Food must always be the same and not strong smelling. Eggs and fish in particular give me the boak.

She couldn't exactly shove it down my throat. I was large and hyperactive.
I don't care

At the end of the day, it was her responsibility and now thanks to her you have a problem

Anyways I wish you luck

That's nice you don't care.

She was a single parent with two other kids. Couldn't exactly physically restrain a large, strong, hyperactive boy. Its not realistic. Health visitors couldn't do anything either.

I always read food labels to make sure there isn't any, though its possible I've accidentally consumed them. Onion powder on crisps is the closest thing.
But crisps are made of potatoes which are vegetables

My mum tried for years to get me to eat normal food. I refused.
But how do you know what she managed to sneak in? I was a master at getting vegetables into my kids - carrot puree in with the tomato on their pizza, beetroot in cake etc.

A good Mum would not accept her child's refusal
Have you ever tried to get a child to eat food it doesn't want to? I once held a piece of carrot on a fork up to my daughter's mouth and she threw up over it before it touched her lips or entered her mouth. If you haven't had to try to feed a fussy eater then you have no grounds to make such sweeping statements. Finally, in their 20s all my kids eat most things but they were all awkward from about 15 months until adulthood.

I was all deep fried alphabites and turkey dinosaurs. Hard to hide vegetables in. I didn't even eat pizza at the time. My list of allowed foods was really small at the time. Usually packaged chocolate. She should have mashed up some multivitamins and put in in the food though, or at least given me orange juice. Ending up with scury is a bit mad.

Yeah, I can't believe I forgot potato was a vegetable. Not that I eat much of them.

Congratulations mate. It's been a couple years for me.

Life's too short to live healthy.

I never said it was easy

Good parents should be able to identify issues like this and be able to get their children the professional help their children need.

Or just wait for them to grow out of it. I was a fussy eater as a child, 3 out of 4 of my kids were and yet none of us is as an adult and we're all healthy. It turns out you can grow up perfectly healthily subsisting on weetabix with milk, cheese and marmite sandwiches on brown bread, satsumas, pasta, prawns, kidneys, peas and crisps for several years.

Chicken nuggets/shapes, sausages, turkey dinosaurs/twizlers, crisps, biscuits, cereal, bacon, chips/shapes, bread, butter, haribo. Later editions (past 5 years) - occasional pepperoni pizza, plain kebab meat, cheeseburgers (plain), sausage rolls, coated peanuts, sporadic clementines/bananas. I can't think of anything else.
