Many people complain that healthy foods are those kinds of food that are bland. Though lots of them wanted to eat healthy stuff such as spinach but taste something like mint eclair. The foods that are good for us do not have the taste as those with unhealthy food we love to eat. Adults find the healthy foods hard to consume, what more when it comes to feeding kids? Eating some tossed salad than potato chips takes a lot of determination and this attitude is the kind of thing most kids ignore. Not to mention, that there are kids who do not believe that eating carrot sticks are more nutritious than consuming a bag of potato chips. Most of the time, parents give their kids some sweets as a reward for finishing their plate of mashed potato.
