Forty-Five Percent of Kids Say They Don't Eat Veggies Daily, but Parents Are Game for Dangling Creative Carrots to Turn the Tables.

After details researched in kids activities I found nearly half of kids still say they don't eat vegetables every day, but their days of hiding peas could be numbered but parents are digging in to find the root cause and declaring some victories, according to my survey one of parents and their children released today.
The survey, from the makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings, looked at vegetable utilization among children and asked parents to report from the front lines of the veggie battle. Of the children surveyed, 45 percent confessed to skipping veggies -- a number that didn't surprise parents. To get kids to reach for a carrot, words alone are not enough, the parents told researchers. In fact, parents who take an active role in teaching their children about vegetables and engaging their kids from the ground up showing them where and how vegetables grow, what nutrients they contain, and including kids in preparing vegetables in home-cooked meals -- report more success at influencing their children's eating habits.
"Engaging children in the garden or even a virtual garden is a great way to plant seeds of knowledge and appreciation, especially because when kids are invested in the entire process, they're more likely to eat and request vegetables they grew themselves.
