Fruit Season is a’comin’

If you want to eat more fruit, or get your kids to eat more fruit, put it where you can see it.  A pretty bowl with bananas, little clementines and apples is very inviting, and when the food is right in front of you, you’re more likely to eat it whether it’s good for you or not.  So keep the candy bars out of sight, and the fruit on the dining table.*

To keep fruits fresh, try putting out just enough for grabbing and leave the rest in the fridge.  We replenish daily after the grabbing and running are done for the day.

*and while you’re in the hammock, read Brian Wansink’s fantastic book, Mindless Eating, about experiments at Cornell proving this and other funny human tricks we play on ourselves.  Mr. Wansink is a terrific writer as well.
