Does Your Kid Hate Vegetables? Make Them Eat Them For 15 Days
I never had an issue with vegetables as a kid. Still don't actually as an adult. But I was always the kid at the birthday party, when the birthday cake was being passed out, I was over at the vegetable plate eating carrots, celery and radishes. Not really sure why, but that's always the way I've been wired.
I do know that this isn't the norm. Lots of kids have issues with vegetables. Well, according to the Daily Mail, if you have an issue with your kid not wanting to eat a specific type of vegetable, give it to them 15 days in a row.
Researchers in England took 80 kids between the age of 9 and 11, and made them eat kale for 15 days in a row. If you've never had kale, you probably should, it is very healthy. But there is a reason it was used as decoration on salad bars before people realized the health benefits. Because it's pretty nasty, even I'll admit that.
But at the end of the 15 days, almost all of the kids were fine with eating kale. There were a few that weren't though. But they were kids known as 'super-tasters'. Those kids have more taste buds than average which means anything bitter, is extra bitter to them.
