Choice is the Key to Getting Children to Eat More Veggies

United Press International

Two researchers, at the Institute for University of Grenada in Spain and the Universities of Wageningen in the Netherlands looked at vegetable consumption in children under age 6.

They found that if children were left to pick there veggies ate every meal, they ate on average 80% more vegetables.
Some vegetables contain bitter elements such as calcium or sulphur, including broccoli, onions, cabbage, chard or collard greens or spinach can be difficult for some children to eat.

It is very important that children eat their veggies. This is one strategy you, as a parent, can try with your child if they are less than enthused when they appear on the dinner plate.
