dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to find an acceptable alternative to eating raw vegetables for children ages 3-7. Vegetables were masked with fruit flavors and served as popsicles, which are well liked by children. Two different age groups and four different vegetables, in three different popsicle flavors, were used in the study. Comparisons were made based on age, flavor, color, willingness to eat again, and the children's attitudes regarding vegetables. 85.4% of the children liked the carrot popsicles, and 81.3% stated they would eat it again. 47.9% of the children liked the beet popsicles, and 54.2% stated they would eat it again. 36.7% of the children liked the broccoli/celery popsicles, and 40.8% stated they would eat it again. The vegetable popsicles were well liked by the children overall, and can be used as an alternative for eating raw vegetables.
