Mum always boiled the suet pudding in muslin tied with cord. This resulted in the pudding looking as though it had a butt. At meal time, when asked if I wanted pudding, I said yes, but don’t give me the bum part.

That Fish Fingers came from The Man from Atlantis and my mum said that it was ok to eat them because he had the power of a starfish and so could grow them back again! I think I had figured out the truth when he became Bobby Ewing in Dallas!

I believed that if I didn’t “hole some” food I would turn into a skeleton. Donuts were the best, but I would always insist that my mother not cut my baloney sandwich in half so I could bite a hole in the center before eating the rest.

When my family ate melon I would leave the skins segments outside along with a couple of used teabags - I thought I was feeding the Moon.

everybody in my family used to be taught that when we eat red paprika as a spice in vegetable sauces and soups, this is what made our cheeks red, and to make us eat carrots my Mom told carrots make us be able to whistle...I stopped believing in this when I stopped to believe in Santa Claus, around 10 years of age.

My gran always told me to 'go easy on the tomato ketchup, because I'm not buying any more', this made me think she was going to die when the bottle was empty, and subsequently made me feel very guilty whenever I put it on my food - in very small amounts.

I realise now she was fibbing, since she lived 'till I was 40!

As a child, i used to find toothpaste particularly yummy. To prevent me from eating too much of it, my dad always told me tht very soon, id have a 'toothpaste tree' growing in my tummy and out of my mouth. That really did make me apprehensive abt my fav meal.

I used to believe that brocoli were little trees and that the Keebler Elves lived in them. I found out this wasn't true when I asked my mother, "Where do the elves live after we cut down their trees to eat them?"

I was convinced that cheese came from a green nice smelling plant that we call the DAUN PANDAN in Malaysia and I told as many people as I could that it truly came from the plant....till today, my kindergarten mates remind me of that very very misguided belief! .....errr I actually made them try to eat the stuff....
