THE KITCHEN — Have you ever tricked your toddlers into eating healthy food? If so, how did that pan out for you?

I remember a time roughly 18 years ago when I sat my oldest son on my lap and tried to get him to eat his liquified fruit.

Rather than a sweet-tasting lure, I used a salt-filled Dorito chip, which he loved. I remember very vividly giving my son a lick of the chip and then a scoop of the "healthy stuff," and repeating that deceitful motion over and over again.

At the time, I felt like a little lie didn't hurt and would actually help him in the long run.

Well, folks, I'm here to tell you that my son is now an adult who still has an affinity for the salty stuff and remains oddly skeptical of anything fruity.

I hope the parents in this video take note.

The video shows their toddler girl being coerced into eating her veggies through the use of a can of whipped cream. The child's mother shows her daughter the can of whipped cream, and her father covers her eyes while the can is sprayed. In a clutch move, a flask of pureed veggies is squirted into the toddler's mouth instead.

In an unexpected plot twist, the toddler does not spit the green, swirly mush out, but actually appears to enjoy the non-whipped-cream substance.

If there is a moral to this story, it is the age-old lesson humans seem to need to learn over and over again: If you're going to spray whipped cream into a child's mouth, make sure it serves a useful purpose — whether it's eating healthy or soothing a crying child.
