Stanford researchers have come up with a new way to get picky preschoolers to eat more vegetables.

Psychologists Sarah Gripshover and Ellen Markman found that teaching children the importance of healthy foods and why their bodies need a variety of foods drives kids to voluntarily eat more vegetables.

The findings, published in the journal Psychological Science, show that young children are capable of understanding a conceptual approach to nutrition.
