The Influence of Labeling the Vegetable Content of Snack Food on Children’s Taste Preferences: A Pilot Study

“Informing children of the presence of vegetables hidden within snack food may or may not alter taste preference and may depend on the frequency of prior exposure to the vegetable.”

I wonder about the results of the study had the children been blindfolded and fed samples of the same vegetable-containing foods but only telling them the vegetable-labeled name for one of them (even though the samples were the same).
