Why do we crave sweet foods even if they’re bad for us?

Why do we have to eat vegetables? Why does junk food taste so good? We answer all of your nutrition questions with Wesley Delbridge of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Other questions in this episode include: Why does eating salty food make you be thirsty? Why do foods have vitamins? Why is breakfast so important? Why do children get hungry at night? Why is fast food so popular?


But Why is a show led by you, kids!

You ask the questions and we find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world.
