Have a Picky Eater on Your Hands? Iowa State University Shares Tips to Encourage Kids to Eat More Veggies

Is it a struggle for your child to fit in one serving of fruits and vegetables a day, let alone the optimal five to thirteen? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nine out of ten children still don’t have enough vegetables in their diet, but Iowa State University has some tips to make sure your child gets their nutritional needs.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture also created a website for videos, activities, and recipes for parents to use to help their children eat more fruits and veggies.
