Have you been trying really hard in encouraging kids to follow healthy diet plans? A recent study has found that parents can encourage their kids to consume healthy food by calling out the names of super heroes like Spiderman and Batman.
The findings of the study have published in the journal Paediatric Obesity. During the study, it was found that if kids are made to admire the super heroes as having apple fries instead of French fries. If children think that their super heroes also consume healthy meal then they will automatically prefer vegetables and fruits instead of junk food.
By changing the perception of the children, they can be encouraged to have fruits and vegetables, which are rich in vitamins and minerals. Wansink from the University of Cornell Food and Brand Lab said, "Advising a parent to ask their child 'What would Batman eat?' might be a realistic step to take in what could be a healthier fast-food world".
The wrong eating habits have adversely affected the health of the kids. It is hoped that the newly study would help parents in preventing childhood obesity and would also in keeping kids healthy.
