A study in this month's Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics showed that providing repeated exposure of broccoli, increases preference and consumption of that vegetable by 18% after 7 weeks of repeated exposure. Repeated exposure requires you to taste the food though!
So you want to eat more veggies or more of a certain veggie that you may not like? The more you expose your self (or your family members) to to the vegetable - serve it on your plate and at least taste it each time! - will increase your liking and the amount that you will eat!
This can be used to get your self to like a certain vegetable or just to increase the amount you eat of a vegetable that you already like!
