Fun Food Facts:
The fear of Vegetables is called Lachanophobia (from the Greek lachaniko, meaning “vegetable”). A phobic person might have been forced to eat vegetables as a child even if he or she did not like the taste and was maybe even punished for not eating his or her vegetables. Some might have observed vegetables growing in the garden and saw that some of the leaves had caterpillars or worms on them and maybe even insects and they fear that if they eat vegetables, they might accidentally eat one of these creepy, crawly creatures. For others, they might be scared that if they accidentally swallow a seed of the vegetable that it will grow inside them.
Lachanophobes often stay away from places where vegetables are present, meaning that they may not go to restaurants or grocery stores. Sometimes it also extends to the point that they might avoid foods with vegetables like pizzas with tomatoes. Symptoms of lachanophobia include shortness of breath, tremors, weeping, screaming, fainting, increased heart rate, increased body temperature, loss of control and urge to flee.
Thankfully, at John Colet we do not have any real Lachanophobes and the only manifestation of dislike, particularly in the younger students, is a face similar to the scary ones we show everyone at Halloween. One of the real highlights of my job is to see these faces replaced with smiles by Year 5.
