Growing up 'fussy'

Today I'm going to talk 'fussy' eating, more specifically when I was growing up because I was a NIGHTMARE. Although I'm still quite fussy now, I feel I have come a long way from good old smiley faces and nuggets....YUM, but say baked beans or spaghetti hoops were touching it would be an instant no-no. I just could not eat it if it touched my food πŸ˜‚ or peas/sweetcorn even tho there's no sauce to them.
Back in the good old days (sorry how old are you ChelseaπŸ™„) my typical dinner would consist of either the frozen potato variety e.g waffles, chips crinkle/straight/french. Then for the 'meaty' part either something like chicken nuggets, sausage or fish fingers.

Yup, no vegetables would touch these lips, still not really today either. I'm happy to try, but 9/10 it's the texture I just can't stomach 😷 
My mum used to make me Heniz macaroni and cheese out the tin and I used to swallow it whole πŸ˜‚ 

Another regular dinner would be rashers of bacon with chips, which we actually used to be able to order in a certain pub for old fussy pants...then, one day, they stopped ☹️
I'm pretty sure the first time I tried pizza I was around the age of 11 and I'm sure I still did not like sauces like ketchup/bbq (which bbq I now LOVE...and pizza ovbs)
Although I'm still a fussy pants, my variety has defiantly widened. I love meals like lasagne or spag bowl, roast dinners (parsnips only) salmon, omelettes, enchiladas, wraps, tacos, the list goes on!
I'm also happy to say I can eat my food even if something I don't like has touched it!
I'm not a fan of lumps or crunchy cold textures, ew.

What was your favourite meal as a kid? Was you fussy or (if possible) worse?
Let me know 😊

take care xo
