Why Kids Hate Broccoli

You aren’t supposed to like broccoli. Broccoli contains chemicals that (most of) our brains are wired to read as “poisionous.” It’s a defense mechanism that prevents animals (and, if we had any sense, people) from eating the nasty green plants.

Actually, I don’t mind brocolli so much, provided that it’s not soaked in cheese or anything. With a little ranch dressing, broccoli is pretty good.

On the other hand, green beans have no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

  1. This is a very interesting point.I work in a preschool room and all of the kids say that they hate broccoli but i never knew why until i ask them and they said that it is because grown up like to eat them and that it is good for them

  2. Yes but that does not answer the question, I am sure barely any kids know that!!
