The research was done in the UK, Denmark and France with children ranging in ages from 4 months to 38 months. The 332 kids were introduced to a vegetable they hadn ' t tried before: artichokes. After between five to ten meals, 75% of the children under 24 months old ate the artichokes. The older children were more likely to reject the artichokes.
The study suggests that if you want your kids to eat a larger variety of vegetables, instead of the typical carrots and peas, try giving them a larger variety of vegetables at a younger age. As your children get older, they ' ll be less willing to try new things. Sure, you may not like some those vegetables personally, but you can avoid passing on that trait to your children.
