Learn to love all foods

Many of us suffer from food aversions, which mean we just don't like eating certain foods. Sometimes it's because we don't like the texture - such as peas or liver, or the taste or smell puts us off - like fresh coriander.  

Other food aversions start when we eat a certain kind of food and then become ill afterwards, such as developing flatulence after drinking milk or cramping after eating soya beans. 

The problem is, sometimes these aversions mean we miss out on important nutrients. The good news is, these aversions can be overcome.
