Giving Your Kid Vegetables Before Dinner Makes Them Eat More Vegetables At Dinnertime!


By Julia Moravcsik, PhD, author of Teach Your Child to Love Healthy Food

A recent study found that giving children carrots before their lunch actually made them eat MORE of the broccoli in their lunch. And the more carrots they ate, the more broccoli they ate.

This is pretty surprising at first glance. You would think that if a kid ate carrots, he would get tired of vegetables and eat less broccoli later on. But starting out a meal eating healthy foods puts the kid in a mode where he enjoys healthy food.

Tips and Techniques


Every night, set out a bowl of vegetables and dip while you're making dinner.  Your child will be hungry, which will make the vegetables taste better.

Would you like a simple, easy-to-follow program that will teach your child to love healthy food? See my new book Teach Your Child to Love Healthy Food on amazon.com.

  1. This is a really good idea. They get vegetables when they're hungry.

  2. Thanks for the comment! You're exactly right -- if a child eats a food while she's hungry, she'll like it better. Food always taste much better when we're hungry.
