Kids will eat more vegetables if they have food literacy education
Scientists from Stanford University have found that kids will eat more vegetables if they learn why eating a variety of foods is healthy.
This study reiterates what we’ve been doing at California Food Literacy Center! Our volunteer teachers have witnessed this phenomenon happening during class. After teaching the kids about the nutrition of a certain vegetable, the kids are much more willing to eat it during snack time, even if it had been unfamiliar to them or something they had disliked before.
