Try, try again
There’s no escaping the fact that cultivating a taste for specific foods can require repeated exposure. Nutritionists say
it can take as many as 15 attempts before a child will accept a new flavor—fortunately, the time line may be considerably
shorter for adults (closer to a handful of tries). If at first you don’t appreciate the taste of healthful, bitter-tasting
veggies, be persistent. A study found that when people consumed a bittersweet beverage once a day for a week, their liking
of the drink increased by 68 percent.
