Study Says Kids Can't Be Fooled Into Eating Healthier

By: Larry Smith
A recent study by researchers at Yale's Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity has presented evidence to what many parents have already known, kids cannot be easily tricked into eating healthier foods.
During the study researchers labeled various foods — gummy fruit, graham crackers or carrots — with stickers of popular cartoon characters, and laid out identical snacks without the stickers, then asked children ages 4 to 6 which snacks they wanted. They also asked them which tasted better.
Most of the 40 children wanted the snacks labeled with cartoon stickers, and a majority of them also said the gummy fruit and graham crackers with the stickers tasted better, but not the carrots.
