Fact of the Day
Did you know?

Researchers at Cornell University have discovered that food order in a buffet line matters, and if healthy food is offered before high-calorie food in the line, 86 percent of eaters choose the healthier option. The study found that placing high-calorie items, such as cheesy eggs, first in the line resulted in the eaters selecting unhealthy choices later in the line as well. If healthy food like fruit is offered first, eaters are less likely to choose a higher-calorie option later on.
