Researchers decided to find out if a statement like "eat lenses if you want to grow and run faster" affects children. During the experiment, this statement was not confirmed because the children chose tasty but not enticing food.
Scientists encouraged boys and girls to participate in the experiment. The choice of children was offered two dishes. The first of these children was served several times a week because most liked it.
At the same time, in the 6-week experiment, the children were offered a low-grade bowl, but with a description of health benefits. A month later, the children ate twice as much food as they liked, compared to the meals that were accompanied by appeals.
Experts say that with this study, they wanted to fill the gap when parents complain that it is difficult for them to have children.
The researchers concluded that with the right approach, a positive statement on the benefits of food being imposed can help children eat more healthy foods.
