An idea for the fussy eater in your family

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If your little one turns up his nose at broccoli, his mouth just might water at the sight of "dinosaur broccoli trees".  A study at Cornell University looked at finding ways to get preschoolers interested in eating vegetables and found that kids are much more likely to try enjoy healthy food if they have cool names. 

For example, one day kids got carrots with their lunch.  The next day they gave them the same lunch but called the carrots "x-ray carrot sticks".  The kids ate nearly twice as many carrots when they came with the neat name.
