Have you heard about the Pied piper effect? Those first thoughts you have early in the morning predicts your attitude throughout the day. That’s why it is important to meditate early in the morning.
Pied Pier Effect Of Fruits And Veggies
In a similar fashion, scientists did an interesting study. 120 shoppers were randomly selected. Some of them were given a crunchy piece of apple to taste. Some others were given a delicious cookie and some were not given anything.
The shoppers gladly continued with their shopping. They were tracked down by the researchers. The people who were given an apple sample bought more of fruits and veggies than those who were given a cookie sample, and people who were not given neither a cookie nor an apple. That’s pretty sad.
If you want to make your kids eat more of the good stuff. Scientists advise you to keep fruits and vegetables in a clear bowl and within arm’s reach. So, after a tired, hungry day you and your kids would snack on healthy food. I would even advise you to keep a jar of nuts nearby, so you can relish a handful of nuts, along with fruits and veggies.
Healthy diet protects you from an early death, reduces diabetes risk and greatly improves your happiness and mental health. And last but not the least regular family meals boosts the intake of fruits and vegetables in kids.
