Re: Ask a Scientist

I think that with kids, they're often not fond of a food if it doesn't trigger dopamine due to them not liking the taste. So essentially, the pleasure/reward areas of their brains aren't being activated when they eat something that they don't like the taste of.

On a similar note, here is a good article I once came across:
