Eat your veggies

Do you serve peas with dinner, only to have your pre-schooler pick at the pasta?

A new study into the eating behaviors of kids might give parents some insight on how to get kids to eat more fruits and veggies.

The theory is simple -- if they're hungry, they'll eat it.

In a series of tests, researchers said kids were more likely to eat fruit and vegetables if they were served as a sort of appetizer, before mealtime.

One other key finding -- kids tended to eat what their parents ate. So if you want your kids to eat their veggies, you'll have to, as well.
