    More exposure to fruit and vegetables when babies first start eating solids, could be the key to better eating habits in the future

    More exposure to fruit and vegetables when babies first start eating solids, could be the key to better eating habits in the future


    Researchers at Massey University are carrying out a study on kiwi mums and their babies.

    Lead researcher Jeanette Rapson says 120 mothers and babies will be included - with researchers controlling what foods are eaten over four weeks.

    They'll then follow up with the participants after nine and 12 months to see who's eating more fruit and veggies.
