Making fruit easier to eat increases sales and consumption in school cafeterias

People believe that children avoid fruit because of the taste and allure of alternative packaged snacks. Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab researchers Brian Wansink, David Just, Andrew Hanks, and Laura Smith concluded that the size of the snack counts the most. Apple sales in schools with fruit slicers increased by 71 percent and the percentage of students who ate more than half of their apple increased by 73 percent, an effect that lasted long after the study was over.
