Kids don't like vegetables. In order to change this, TBWA Belgium decided the best way to get them to eat their vegetables, was to stop calling them vegetables and give them a more creative name. Twelve vegetables were given magical names: a carrot was an orange rocket, mushrooms became gnome trumpets, endive became dragon's teeth and more. They then took these names and put them on all the in-store signage and point of sale, even on the receipts. Kids could even go online to come up with names for other vegetables, too. How fun.
Not only that, the grocery store saw a 151% increase in sales thanks to the magic vegetables.
