Welcome to WTF?! Wednesday, a weekly feature here at Dos Veganos where we will highlight the absurd, humorous, and downright “DUH!” moments in the realm of nutrition and health.
Ding Ding Ding! Alright everyone! Back to your corners!
A totally “Captain Obvious” article about the ongoing feud between teenagers and vegetables:
It’s hilarious to me that the “news” covers this like it’s something we don’t already know. At the same time, it’s sad to me that it’s become such the norm and that it never seems to change. I think how different my life would be if I had been raised with an awareness and love of eating my veggies when I was in my teens. Maybe no acne, higher energy, increased self-confidence…not to mention the course it would have set for my adulthood!
God knows salads bore me just as much as the next guy, but can we get a little justice for our young people please? The suggestion in the article nails it though. The secret is more cooking as a family. When my nieces come over I try to cook a dish with them so that they’re invested in a fun project and more inclined to try the food just to find out what their little creative hands made.
Quality time together and nutritious and tasty homemade food? How can you go wrong? Maybe there’s an App for that…
