Remember when your parents had to make things up, just to get you eat things you didn't like? Apparently LYING to your children is a time-honored tradition parents still use.


Here are four MYTHS parents tell their kids to get them to eat specific foods . . .


1. 31% of parents tell their kids that eating the crusts on their bread will give them curly hair.


2. 29% tell their kids that milk will make them strong. And sure, milk IS good for you, but just chugging milk while you sit on the couch playing video games won't make anyone strong.


3. 25% tell their kids eating carrots will help them see in the dark.


4. And 11% tell their kids that POPEYE is real . . . and eating spinach makes you strong. (Daily Mail)
