Children can become very picky eaters and there are a number of reasons for this. Some children are naturally more sensitive to different tastes, smells, and textures. While other children develop picky eating habits as they grow. Some prefer carrots or raw peppers, while others like pasta, bread, or rice. And, according to dozens of studies, kids’ eating patterns were linked to and affected by many things, starting from personality traits to parental control at mealtime or their own eating patterns, as well as to social influences.
If I’d have to pick on food, which I do, olives wouldn’t make it on my list. I don’t know whether to blame my personality, my parents, the world, or the taste itself. Strangely enough (for me), there are many people who indulge in olives or consider them as their favorite food. Take for example, Princess Charlotte. Yes, that’s right.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has revealed her daughter’s interesting and quite ‘fancy’ food preference when she visited pupils at Lavender Primary School for Children’s Mental Health Week.
Speaking to the children present during “Show and Tell”, the Duchess explained how much the little princess enjoys eating olives as a snack. For more, Princess Charlotte also involves her brother too, Prince George, to prepare the meals, especially if they’re having pasta. She said:
One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in, and they make salads and stuff.

The Duchess of Cambridge also spoke with the children about the effect which the high level of sugar in food has on mental health, as it can lead to a brief feeling of euphoria before depleting emotions.
