How to make children like more fruits and vegetables
And Australian study found out that there`s a very simple way to make children like more fruits and vegetables. Experts from the Deakin University examined 72 students from a primary school about their eating habits and the kind of food they like.
Children would more likely eat a whole carrot than a diced carrot on a plate.
"on average this meant they ate about 10 percent more of the whole fruit or vegetable than when given diced carrots to try. It is obvious that they will rather eat a whole carrot than the same quantity diced on a plate." - said Dr. Liem.
Unit size also had previously been shown to be useful in limiting consumption of unhealthy snack foods too. Dr. Liem said that children will eat less chocolate if it`s in smaller pieces.
