As you age, the number of taste buds you have tend to diminish.  An average child is born with about 10,000 taste buds.  An average elderly person only has about 5,000.  This is partially why many kids hate vegetables so much.  Vegetables can be very bitter to “super tasters” or those close to that.  As you age and your taste buds diminish, this bitter flavor goes away somewhat and changes the taste of the vegetables dramatically in the process.
