If your little ones enjoy eating their vegetables, you're one of the lucky ones. However, it's usually not that simple to get your kids to eat their veggies that's why this mom's simple hack is actually pure genius. Jane Stine lived in Thailand for four years before moving back to the U.S. When she went to the grocery store with her son, she noticed that a lot of products had unnecessary stickers on them. For example, she bought pineapple with a Frozen 2 tag on it and it had nothing to do with a pineapple. That's when she had her "a-ha" moment and wrote a Facebook posts with her hack.
"Here’s my best parenting hack. You know how kids always want Paw Patrol yogurt or Disney waffles or whatever? Bring your own stickers to the grocery store and start sticking. Today we’re having Winnie the Pooh brand spaghetti squash. It goes perfectly with Toy Story broccoli."
She found that when she started putting Toy Story stickers on items around the grocery store, "it made my son have a lot of fun picking them out and let us focus on getting the items we wanted instead of getting distracted by packaging. It turns out that her little hack actually has scientific evidence behind it. According to Live Science, a 2012 study by Cornell University found that children were more likely to choose a piece of fruit for their snack if it had an Elmo sticker attached to it.
