Washington: Children ate more apples when they were provided with fruit slicers in school cafeterias, according to a new research.The finding confirmed that increasing the convenience of fruit increases consumption.Previous studies and surveys have shown that kids love to eat fruit in ready-to-eat bite-sized pieces, yet in most school settings, the fruit is served whole, which could be the cause that children are taking fruits but not eating them.Most people believe that children avoid fruit because of the taste and allure of alternative packaged snacks.The study by Cornell University`s Food and Brand Lab researchers Brian Wansink, David Just, Andrew Hanks, and Laura Smith decided to get to the bottom of why children were avoiding their fruit.To address this question, researchers conducted a pilot study in eight elementary schools within the same district.
