Kid Food vs Adult Food

What differentiates the concept of “kid food” versus “adult food”? I started to ask myself this question the other day, as I pondered whether the meals I’m making are too much for a young person’s palate. Can our kids love gazpacho and salad? Is it culture that makes some food seem yucky, or is it just part of the child physiological development?

 I found an article that talks just about this idea: 

The Art and Science of Teaching Kids to Eat Right
 
According to this article, the idea of “kid food” is something we socialize children into believing by our treatment of the subject.
 
I think we have a very important job here in developing our kids’ idea of how food should look and taste. Together we can help them grow into healthier eating patterns as adults.
