Interesting Word - Lachanophobia

Lachanophobia is a fear of vegetables.

(The reason this came up was there have been a couple of news stories on people suffering from this condition in the UK.

According to the Mail Online, students Vicki Larrieux and Abi Stroud cannot eat their five a day because they suffer from panic attacks at the merest sight of a sprout or a pea, and what is worse The Metro reports that Dee Vyas developed the phobia after being made to eat greens as a child.  Why is it worse than the other two? She's a vegetarian! Seemingly, she lives off sweets and crisps.

I think a bit of cognitive therapy would come in handy here.)
