A new study shows that flavor-pairing may help kids actually like vegetables.  Flavor-pairing sauces and dips with vegetables has been around for as long as parents have been trying to coax their youngsters into eating their veggies.

In the new study, 29 preschoolers were interviewed on how they felt about 11 different vegetables.  Most of the youngsters had not ever tried cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.  The children were split into groups, and were fed cauliflower and Brussels sprouts for one week.  One group of children was served plain vegetables, while another group ate theirs with cream cheese, and yet another group was given their vegetables with sweetened cream cheese.

After the week long testing period, all of the children were served the same vegetables plain.  The children who were fed the vegetables with cream cheese, whether sweetened or unsweetened, liked the vegetables much more than the group who had eaten them plain for one week.  They didn’t stop there, the children who had eaten the vegetables with cream cheese for the week long period actually ate more of their vegetables when served plain than the children who ate them simply plain the entire time.

“This has the potential to change the eating habits of children, including eating more vegetables, and this in turn will affect childhood obesity,” states lead author of the study Elizabeth Capaldi-Phillips.

Previous research has stated that children need to try a food 8 to 10 times before they adjust to the taste, however this “taste testing” period lasted only seven days.

The moral of the story?  If your youngster turns his nose up at new, or even old vegetables, try pouring on some Ranch dressing or cheese sauce.  It couldn’t hurt to try!
