Getting to the root of why kids don’t like vegetables

Loughborough’s child feeding experts are hoping to unearth the reasons why some pre-schoolers simply refuse to eat vegetables.

Researcher Clare Holley wants to speak to parents and caregivers whose 2-4 year-olds refuse, or are very reluctant, to eat a variety of vegetables.

Participants will be invited to an informal group meeting where they can discuss the problems they face with Clare and other parents in a similar situation.

To take part in the research contact Clare on 01509 228151 or email
