Eating Spinach ( Momimhar posted on February 27th, 2012 )

Children learn lessons and get good influence from cartoons too.

—————–

Popeye, the spinach-eating cartoon character first introduced to audiences in 1933, still inspires kids to eat their vegetables.  That’s what researchers at Mahidol University in Bangkok determined after showing four and five-year-olds the cartoon.  The kids who watched Popeye down a can of spinach ate twice as many vegetables as the kids who did not see the cartoon.  Professor Chutima Sirikulchayanonta, lead researcher, says the experiment prompted children to eat more vegetables, but didn’t influence their fruit consumption – probably because they already eat lots of fruit.  Popeye is credited with saving the spinach industry in the U.S. in the 1930s.

Fruits and vegetables are good for the body.  Children who eat fruits and vegetables are healthier, more active, and smarter.  So as early as toddler age, we should encourage our kids to eat these healthy foods.

Movies and TV Shows ( Momimhar posted on May 5th, 2009 )

Watching comedy movies and kiddie television shows are the favorite hobby at home. My niece and nephews love to watch kiddie movies, especially cartoon ones.We have a set of cartoon movies at home. They played them over and over whenever they want to watch movies on weekends. Movies in DVD like Nemo, The Incredibles, Mr. Bean, and others are available in the house. I love it when I hear the kids’ laughter while watching movies. It uplifts my heart knowing they have fun doing stuff like this.When come home, I will bring a couple of recent cartoon movies for my niece and nephews to enjoy.
