The purpose of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is to introduce pleasurable food education to children during their learning years, in order to form positive food habits for life.
To examine whether parents offering a sticker reward to their child to taste a vegetable the child does not currently consume is associated with improvements in children’s liking and consumption of the vegetable.
This study aimed to (1) investigate short-term effects and long-term effects of non-food rewards on liking and intake of a moderately disliked vegetable; and (2) to compare exposure without reward with no-exposure control.
The Healthy Habits trial aimed to assess the efficacy of a telephone-based intervention for parents to increase the fruit and vegetable consumption in their 3–5-y-old children.
We report two field studies in an elementary school cafeteria that each demonstrate children eat more of a vegetable (carrots, broccoli) when we provide it first in isolation versus alongside other more preferred foods
To compare taste exposure, nutrition education and taste exposure plus nutrition education together on intake of an unfamiliar vegetable (mooli/daikon radish) in preschool-aged children.
This pilot study aimed to determine the effectiveness of repeated exposure to either single or multiple target vegetables in increasing vegetable acceptance and intake in low-vegetable-consuming children aged 4−6 years
The present study sought to examine the combined effects of learning about an unfamiliar vegetable (celeriac) through illustrated storybooks (the term storybook refers to an illustrated narrative storybook throughout) with sensory play on recognition and intake of that “target” vegetable.
