3 Characteristics Daniel's Diet Produced
There was a noticeable difference in the children of Israel that King Nebuchadnezzar requested be brought back during the Babylonian siege on Jerusalem.

He wanted the children of the elite kings and princes because they had no blemishes, were well-favored, skillful in all wisdom, cunning in knowledge, understood science, ability to stand in the palace.

Once the Israelite children were brought into the eunuchs, the King having no clue WHY they were so intelligent and healthy, appointed their daily diet of his delicacies

Daniel had purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the King's meat, so he applied his skillful wisdom and ability to stand in the palace to gain the respect of Melzar, the prince of the eunuchs. He persuaded him to give them ten days to prove the difference between a nutritious diet and a diet of delicacies. 

At the end of 10 days, it was evident that the nutrient-rich diet God had instructed His people to eat was much better than the King's diet of empty-calorie delicacies
