Eat the Rainbow

Do you have a picky eater? The secret to getting your little one to eat may be to introduce more color to their meals.

According to a recent study from Cornell University, kids find plates of food with six colors the most appealing while adults prefer just three colors. Interestingly, the study found that colorful food appeals to children more than adults. Specifically, children preferred food plates with seven different items and six colors, while adults preferred food plates with only three different items and three colors.

    That’s interesting!! I feel like people tend to assume kids are picky eaters even when they aren’t. It’s awesome that kids are actually more drawn to variety than kids are!
