School gardens increase vegetable consumption | Science Crush


If kids grow vegetables, they’re more likely to eat them. A new Cornell study published in Acta Paediatrica shows that when garden grown vegetables were slipped into school salads, kids were over four times as likely to take a salad. “This is a small study, but it suggests gardens can help children’s diets – even in the snow belt,” said lead author Brian Wansink PhD, Director of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab and author of Slim by Design.
