Meet Marla Lopez: One of the World’s Pickiest Eaters

Monday, December 10th, 2012

OK, I am of course only assuming that Marla Lopez is one of the world’s pickiest eaters but, given she eats only three types of foods, I don’t think it’s that far a stretch.

The 54-year-old mother recently told ABC News that her diet – which consists of milk (including ice cream), white breads (including crackers, tortillas, and pancakes), and potatoes (including potatoes and French fries) has been a picky eater since she was an infant. She would gag and spit up her baby food and, these days, can’t even touch spaghetti.

Oh, and you know how important it is for us to “shop the perimeter”? Grab as much of that healthy, brightly colored produce as our buggies and budgets allow? By her own words, Lopez doesn’t “see food” when she looks at the fruits and vegetables.
