Eating vegetables is one of the most important aspects of what is considered a healthy diet by today's standards. Getting children to eat these predominantly green gifts of nature is often a challenge since they offer little satisfaction to the taste buds. I myself did not put a priority on vegetable intake until I was in my 30s. My body has since paid the price for my apathy.

According to a study conducted by Stanford University, when the psychology department renamed how the vegetables were worded on the menu, more students would choose them with their meal.

To be honest, it's a shame that we need clever word play in order to think we want to be healthy. I am very guilty for lacking in vegetables during my younger years but I take responsibility for that. Next time you grocery shop, just remember you should probably spend a little more time in the produce department.
