Lachanophobia



Lachanophobia is a childhood disorder that some people never really overcome.

Lachanophobia is "fear of vegetables", for example Lachanophobia Brusselus Sproutus.



Language Notes

This is a modern word, invented from the Greek words "λάχάνον", meaning "vegetable" (or really anything cultivated in a garden, as opposed to collected from the wild) and φόβος , meaning fear, terror, flight or dismay.


As it's an invented word, there's nothing to say that you can't be both more creative and exact in defining your child's specific fear by sticking Latin or Greek-sounding words on at the end, such as, say, Lachanophobia Brusselus Sproutus, Lachanophobia tomatitis or Lachanophobia cucumi sativi.
