Serving larger portions of veggies may increase young kid’s veggie intake

Most parents at some stage find getting children to eat vegetables can be a mission.

However this new research does open up some interesting ways to view this age old subject.

Penn State researchers found that when they doubled the amount of corn and broccoli served at a meal the children ate 68% more of the veggies.

The researchers also looked at what happens when parents pair vegetables with their child’s other favourite foods or when they add extra butter or salt.
