Children eat Veggies if Paired with a Drink

Children eat Veggies if Paired with a DrinkEver tried to make your child eat Broccoli or even Spinach? There has been a huge worry among parents to make sure that their children eat vegetables, which is healthy for them in spite of junk food. They go through a lot to make sure of that, but often find it very hard. But a new research has come up with a study that would come as a boon for many parents. According to the researchers at the University of Oregon, there is a profound acceptance among children of raw vegetables as a snack when they are paired with either a sweetened drink or even plain water.

The research, at the University of Oregon, looked at children's acceptance of raw vegetables as a snack when paired with either a sweetened drink or with plain water. They came to this conclusion after surveying parents of 40 boys and 35 girls aged between three and five. The children also took part in a taste test trials in which they were offered carrot sticks and red peppers with either water or a sweet drink. The results showed that most children ate more vegetables if some type of drink was offered along with it.
