Growing up, Katie Green had a normal and extremely happy childhood. However, as a child, she had an aversion to finishing certain foods (like toast), foods that she would end up hiding behind her bookshelf when she didn't want to eat them. As Katie entered her teenage years, she found herself becoming more averse to eating altogether.
