Why Grown Up Kids Hate Milk

"Mummy, I don't like milk.", one of the most common sentences often heard in families when mothers try to force the nutritious white liquid into children's mouth. But why children don't like milk, is it bad taste? I feel something different.

Right from birth, I mean when baby is just a few hours old, the first they get to eat (rather drink) is "milk", through breast feeding. Though the child is unable to decipher the meaning, but the word is encoded into the mind. Child keeps getting milk for next consicutive years and (s)he gets bored of the word "milk" and develops a resistance for it, which results in hatered for a good food.

You may try saying the following lines many times and lets see Yuou still wanna drink...

From personal experience with raising of two sons, If the adults/parents, also consume milk in normal course with kids at breakfast, kids do not find milk boring and do not view milk as some thing special, meant only for kids then record their objection by rebelling against milk.
