The answer to this riddle, in a word, is good old-fashioned persistence. At least that's according to a recent study which indicates that if you persistently show kids the veggies, they will eat them.

Because according to researchers, they've found the more green beans the babies saw the more likely they were to eat them and eventually enjoy them, even when given the choice of something sweet to eat instead, like peaches.

The study’s authors also suggest that parents focus not only on children's facial expressions when eating new foods, but on their willingness to continue eating.
