Kids love to eat healthy, you just need to give them a choice. This is all according to a recent study:
“Our study showed that healthier children’s menu options were ordered a lot more often when those options were more prevalent and prominent on kids’ menus, highlighting the promise of efforts to shift the status quo and make healthier options the new norm,” said study lead author Stephanie Anzman-Frasca. She is a research associate at Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston.”
According to the restaurant, after the change, almost half of orders from the children’s menu were for healthier options compared with just 3 percent before. How to get kids to eat healthy? Get the whole story using the link below.
