It is no secret that most people in America today do not eat enough fruits or veggies each day. According to a recent report from the CDC, only 26% of adults admitted to eating 3 or more servings of vegetables a day. Even the well-known health benefits of eating veggies do not entice people to give veggies the love they deserve!
On the other hand, I am sure that most parents want to get their kids ingesting veggies at each meal. After all, no parent wants to feel like they don’t care about their child’s health and nutrition! In desperation, they may rely on offering rewards or issuing threats to ensure their child’s cooperation.
Well, according to this Chef Boyardee advertisement, an alternate strategy is to hide the veggies in the food and just don’t tell them! Brilliant idea from their highly paid marketers!
What do you think? Is it smart to get a full serving of veggies, or whole grain pasta in your child’s tummy no matter what even if it means you hide it behind loads of salt, fat and sugar?
It is about time we give up on such stealth tactics and promote veggies in an overt, intelligent and sustainable way.
