Letter: Getting kids to eat veggies easy; no study needed
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Once again, so-called researchers ("Bribing kids to eat veggies might work, study says," Tribune, Dec. 19) have demonstrated they don't have the brains they were born with.

Solutions: 1. Parental responsibility: "Don't want to finish your dinner? Fine. No dessert." 2. Schools: Teach cafeteria cooks how to prepare vegetables so they actually taste good, not like a watery mess.

Problem solved. No need for those who find the obvious so elusive to apply for another million-dollar grant to come up with hare-brained solutions.
