At my favorite Indian restaurant, there's an item on the menu called The Perfect Curry. It's actually just a pretty good curry but I always order it -- how could I not?
"In a new study, 186 4-year-olds were given regular carrots and, on other lunch days, they were given the same vegetables renamed X-ray Vision Carrots. On the latter days, they ate nearly twice as many."
So if your kid is into super-strength peepers (or other superpowers), treating dinner time like story time could be a great hack for getting him to eat his veggies.
"Could I have the Perfect Curry with a side of Super Strength Broccoli, please?"
