Kids Who Cook Are Hungrier for Healthy Food Choices

A province-wide survey of Grade 5 students in Alberta suggests the best way to get your child to eat healthier foods -- and actually enjoy them -- is to have them help with meal preparation.

"Kids who like fruits and vegetables more tend to eat them more frequently and have better diets," said lead author Yen Li Chu, a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Public Health. "These data show that encouraging kids to get involved in meal preparation could be an effective health promotion strategy for schools and parents."

Another way to get kids to eat vegetables is naming vegetables as if you were in advertising. Kids would rather eat X-Ray Vision Carrots, Tiny Tasty Tree Tops (broccoli) or Silly Dilly Green Beans than plain old vegetables.
