Veggies are sometimes called by more than one name, one of which tends to be more appealing than others. Names can make a food seem tastier, especially to kids or people who are picky, so watch what you call them if you want to get someone to eat it. All it takes is changing what you call it.
- People are influenced to eat a certain food or not by the name of the food.
- Indulgent names like “rich buttery roasted sweet corn” appeals to most people.
- According to a study, published in the medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine, found that giving vegetables certain descriptive labels caused more students and staff at Stanford University to choose vegetables during lunch — even though there was no difference in the way the vegetables were prepared.
