Plug those same children into WWII where there's nothing to eat and those tastes will disappear quickly.
"Nothing to eat" is the crux. I was a young child during WWII with strict rationing. My mother sourced as well a she could but there were many foods I chose not to eat. Mostly offal. There were enough vegetables from the victory garden that our plates generally had several things on them, and meat is not a daily necessity. Of course, if you were subject to starvation rations, like a friend who grew up in wartime Netherlands and whose family resorted to tulip bulbs, or a friend from Crete during Nazi occupation who said they lived off horta (wild greens) and snails, you would eat anything that kept you alive.l
