Panel | From First Foods to Table Foods: Creating a World Where Kids Love Broccoli


Research has shown that introducing babies and young children to vegetables helps to train early taste buds to accept this important food group as they transition to table foods. However, many options in the marketplace rely on the sweetness of fruit, preventing opportunities to introduce bitter flavors and shape taste preferences. As the desire for early introduction increases, innovative companies are leading the way in offering more veggie-forward options. Will this continue to be the trend? How can healthier options be made more accessible to all? Hear from baby food manufacturers and public health advocates on tackling challenges with early palate development, the current guidelines under review, and the role industry can play in changing the trajectory for a new generation of broccoli lovers.
