Getting kids to eat healthy
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - May 29, 2012 (WPVI) -- A new study suggests a relatively easy way to get children to eat more vegetables, serve water with meals.
Experts at the University of Oregon say research has found people correlate a glass of water with healthy food, and sugary drinks with items from convenience stores and fast-food restaurants.
Researchers say preschool children ate a lot more vegetables when they drank water instead of soda.
One study author says told The Register-Guard newspaper that drinking water with dinner can give kids a healthier mindset.
