I'd agree with most of these, but admit that I'd take boxed mac and cheese or a pot pie over liver and onions any day of the week.

Who's childhood are we talking, here?

There are a few of those that I am really skeptical the past generation or two has ever even been served. Show me a preponderance of moms younger than my grandma's generation who a. would even know how to prepare liver and onions and b. Would earnestly attempt to serve it up to kiddos.

I don't remember not liking anything, as a kid, but the only thing on the list my kids wouldn't eat is liver.

I admit, there are a few things on that list I would still eat, if only calories, fat, sodium, and gluten weren't an issue.

My mother made liver and onions because my father loved them. I was one of 7 kids, and only one brother willingly ate liver as an adult. His own kids have never tasted it, thanks to my SIL.

My mother never made instant macaroni and cheese or cottage cheese salad. My father wouldn't allow Spam in the house. Bologna, fish sticks and canned ravioli were treats. I was forced to eat home cooked meals. I hated liver when I was a kid. Is there anything worse than being forced to eat a slab of overcooked cow's liver when you thought you were going to have something else for dinner? Mom eventually switched to calve's liver, then chicken liver and stopped overcooking it, so it got better. I don't hate liver, but I don't want to eat a plate full.

For me it was zucchini

My mother couldn't cook, so they were always hopelessly soggy and bitter tasting.
