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
