Getting your kids to eat healthier

Posted: Updated:

Children may be more likely to try new food if they grow it and cook it themselves.

A new Australian study looked at children in third to sixth grade, and their parents, who were involved in a school program that teaches cooking and gardening. 

The students in the program were more likely to try new foods and spices.

They also started bringing healthier lunches and snacks to school.
