Preschool kids know what they like: Salt, sugar and fat

Preschool kids know what they like: Salt, sugar and fat.

This recent article published in Science Daily really caught my attention. To me, it drives home the importance of prioritizing home cooking as much as possible and exposing kids from their early months to a variety of flavors outside the salt, sugar, and fat triumvirate. And though it does seem possible to think that if this hasn’t happened by preschool, it will never happen – don’t fret! Plenty of additional research on the impact of school gardens and improved school lunch programs shows that food preferences do change in older children if they are exposed enough to good food.
