It’s a common fact that people tend to adjust their preferences and their decision-making based on past and relevant experiences. That happens in order to make faster and better decisions in many aspects of their every-day lives. Psychologists refer to this behavior as a “Rule of thumb”.
Parents could take advantage of that rule of thumb and increase their kids’ preferences on fruits.
Let’s see how…
COLOR CODES – nudging to healthy eating without your child knowing.
Parents- just play with colors.
Most children love eating junk or fast food like pizza, hot dogs or hamburgers. But, have you ever wondered why?
There are at least 3 possible reasons children have a high preference for fast food:
- It tastes nice!
- It is popular amongst other children!
- Adults consume fast food but they often do not allow their children to do so!
Based on those aforementioned facts, our suggestion to you parents is:
Instead of just serving your children plain fruits or telling them how healthy fruits are, nudge them with some special fruit salad designs like a fruit pizza or some fruit kabobs.
Kids won’t be able to resist them and they are going to find them really tasty!!!
It’s totally worth your effort and time!
