Exposing infants to a new vegetable early in life encourages them to eat more of it compared to offering novel vegetables to older children. The study also found that even fussy eaters are able to eat a bit more of a new vegetable each time they are offered it.
"If you want to encourage your children to eat vegetables, make sure you start early and often. Even if your child is fussy or does not like veggies, our study shows that 5-10 exposures will do the trick."
