Children and vegetables: Strategies to increase children’s liking and intake of vegetables

Victoire de Wild defended her thesis on 30 October 2015. Her promotor was prof. dr. Kees de Graaf, professor of Sensory Science and Eating Behaviour. The dissertation focuses on the vegetable intake of small children, which is far below than recommended. The thesis demonstrates that repeatedly offering a novel or disliked vegetable in a trusted positive environment is highly effective in promoting toddlers’ and pre-school children’s vegetable intake.
