A study out of Cornell university of four-year-olds finds jazzing up the names of vegetables makes them much more palatable to kids.
One day, they were given carrots with lunch.
On other days, the carrots were re-named x-ray vision carrots.
Kids ate nearly TWICE as many carrots when they were given the cooler name.
Researchers say kids continued to eat more veggies even after the foods went back to their original names.
