Mike Carruthers:
When you think about healthy eating - for many people it congers up a pretty negative image.

Mike Carruthers:
It's estimated that we make about 200 food decisions a day. And we can influence how we make those decisions.

 

Brian Wansink:
We did something where we put candies on their (secretaries) desk or we put them six feet from their desk. And every single day we found out that the average secretary ended up eating a hundred and twenty five more calories if the candy was right on their desk than if it was just six feet away.

Mike Carruthers:
Getting kids to eat healthy foods like vegetables has always been a challenge.

 

Dr. Natalie Digate Muth:
Kids intrinsically and all of the people like foods that are sweet and salty and that’s probably due to evolutionary reasons and most vegetables are bitter and most of the things that kids love are either sweet or sour.
