A Strategy to Promote Healthier Eating in Kids.

Watching cooking shows may be the key ingredient to getting children to eat healthier foods. In this study, researchers asked 125 10- to 12-year-olds to watch a public television cooking program designed for children and then provided snacks after the viewing. The research team observed that kids who watched a cooking show featuring healthy food were 2.7 times more likely to choose a healthy snack than those who watched a cooking show featuring unhealthy food.
