Batman to encourage kids to eat healthy


Superheroes such as Batman can prompt children to develop their own healthy eating habits, a recent Cornell University has found.

This study reminds us of Popeye the Sailor, who inspired a generation of growing baby boomers to eat its spinach.

During the study fully 45 percent children selected apple fries after being shown pictures of superheroes and other role models, compared to 9 percent who choose apple fries with no superhero prompts.

On an average children who consumed apple fries consumed only 34 calories whereas children who selected french fries consumed 227 calories. That's almost seven times as many calories just from the side dish of the meal.
