The science of getting your kids to eat more vegetables

Exposure and persistence

According to a 2004 study, 19% of four- to six-month-olds are picky eaters, with that figure rising to 50% by age 19 to 24 months. Toddlers are notoriously resistant to anything new, but food intake surveys show that the dislike of vegetables is widespread, starts early, and persists through childhood.

It's all about the "flavor window"—and a willingness to be persistent.

I remember my folks tried to feed me squash - once. I threw up all over the dinner table.

Food from History

Fried Chicken In The 18th Century

This fried chicken recipe comes from Nathan Bailey's 1736 cookbook, "Dictionarium Domesticum." This recipe calls for a marinade that is sure to surprise you. The tartness of the marinade contrasted to the sweetness of the batter really sets this dish off.

The art and science of the “cheese pull”: Why the cheesiest ad trick still makes us hungry

A cheese pull is an image that “brings people into the moment and gets them out of their right minds,” said Mark DiMassimo, chief executive of the advertising agency DiMassimo Goldstein. “They have this iconic bit of hunger transmitted to their brains and they just without thinking go out and eat a lot of the product.”


There's also the "hair flip," the sweating soda bottle, and the "chocolate orgasm."

Oh Britain, what have you done!

European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said he was "very sad" that Britain had voted to leave, but repeated that there would be "no renegotiation" of Britain's membership.

We have become free, that is what we have done.

Junker, and other EU leaders are now scared that other EU citizens will realise that they too can free themselves from bad governance, poor decisions, over-regulation and burdensome bureaucracy.

Britain votes to leave the EU, here’s what happens next

"Britons have voted to leave the EU but that doesn't mean Brexit has happened."

"Prof: It is most likely that the European Commission will do the negotiating on behalf of the remaining 27 member states."

When you floss, all that mouth bacteria ends-up in your blood! Of course, still having teeth at 60 is nice too.

ummm, this is weird and beautiful at the same time

These creatures use glowing vomit to attract mates — and it’s utterly beautiful

"When you're there watching this display it's spectacular," Ellis said. "You can have up to nine species all in the same area displaying at similar times. I don't know how the females do it, but they're really good at figuring out who is their correct male."

Bioluminescent courtship rituals — even ones that involve vomit — can promote diversity, scientists say.

How the food you eat affects your brain

So which foods cause you to feel so tired after lunch? Or so restless at night?

When it comes to what you bite, chew and swallow, your choices have a direct and long-lasting effect on the most powerful organ in your body: your brain.

Anti-migration is nothing to do with race. It is about having the room and resources to accept immigrants. Our services eg, NHS are at breaking point. This needs investment. Building more homes for more immigrants to then use our already exhausted is not right.

I accept that a number of immigrants should be allowed in the UK. Freedom of movement has made it difficult to control our borders.

Elon Musk’s brother is opening a health food joint with an under-$5 menu

Kimbal Musk—who at 43 years old is a year younger than Elon—plans to open a fast-food restaurant that offers only healthy and locally-sourced foods with menu prices hovering around $5 for every item, reports Food & Wine.

It will be called “The Kitchenette,” and the first location will open in Memphis, Tennessee, in August.


Kimbal Musk is taking on a big challenge: Selling healthy fast food at McDonald's prices.
