Scientists find a simple way to get kids to eat more vegetables

Children are notoriously picky eaters and parents may struggle to get them to eat the daily recommended amount of vegetables. This problem is compounded by readily available high-fat, salty, and sweet food products often lacking adequate nutrition, resulting in parents who give up on trying to get their kids to turn to healthier alternatives. Scientists have revealed a method that may change that, however, and it involves exposure to a large variety of vegetables.

Plant-based diets may protect the heart, but lack a vital brain nutrient

Plant-based diets have been the source of a growing number of studies focused primarily on heart health and cancer risk.
