Washington: The reason kids fear trying out new food has less to do with what`s on their plate and more to do with their genes, a study has revealed.The work, led by Myles Faith, an associate professor of nutrition at University of North Carolina`s (UNC) Gillings School of Global Public Health, adds to the growing body of knowledge that genes play a significant role in children`s eating behavior, including the tendency to avoid new foods."In some respects, food neophobia, or the aversion to trying new foods, is similar to child temperament or personality," Faith said."Some children are more genetically susceptible than others to avoid new foods. However, that doesn`t mean that they can`t change their behaviors and become a little less picky," he said.
