A new study says there's an easy way to get kids to eat their vegetables.

Just give them new names. reports that kids ate twice as many carrots when they were called by a "cooler" name like "x-ray vision carrots."

Lead author of the study Brian Wansink of Cornell University said eating vegetables can be fun for kids.

"Cool names can make for cool foods," he said. "Whether it be 'power peas' or 'dinosaur broccoli trees,' giving a food a fun name makes kids think it will be more fun to eat."

"And it seems to keep working - even the next day," Wansink added.
