Sweets and fruits are lined up either side of the table, the judges are ready, one .. two .. three .. eat!
Which give us the biggest sweetness hit? The instant pleasure, the lack of challenging textures or "bits"?
When we compare commercially produced "fruit items" like fruit bars or purees to regular fruit it's usually a no-brainer as to which is the most appealing.
It also makes it more challenging to get the kids eating the fresh stuff when we offer say a fruit bar next to a mandarin.
I always work on the premise that my boys are smart, if they have limited stomach space and time they will go for the item that provides the most immediate pleasure.
When we're looking to change the way our kids eat it's always good to look at what the competition is. Choc bar v plate of broccoli ...hmmm, let me see ...
