A side of power peas and x-ray carrots, please

Susie pig here is not as picky as most kids when it comes to fruits and veggies. Nevertheless, we did tell her she was eating apocalypse apples and lightning fast lettuce.

Apparently this works well with children too - kids who are told their carrots are x-ray capable or that they're eating tomato bursts! are more likely to eat their veggies.

This makes sense, spicing up the idea of our food can make the drab seem a lot more appetizing. I like chocolate cupcakes, but a Triple Deluxe Choco-extravaganza cupcake with Cocoa-mousse icing sounds a little more mouth-watering!
