Swap your cereal box for a fruit bowl

Health, Kitchen

You are likely to be 21lbs (1.5 stone) heavier by having breakfast cereal on display in your kitchen, particularly if you are female. This is according to a study by Brian Wansick, an American professor in the fields of consumer behaviour and nutritional science. Participants of the same study that displayed fruit in their kitchen weighed 13lbs less than their neighbours that didn’t. The clip below is taken from Phil Spencer’s short on the ‘Perfect Kitchen’.

With this matter in mind, here is some fruit bowl inspiration. A very easy addition/change to the kitchen to help with the health-kick new year resolutions!

A home accessory post currently would not be complete without a hint of copper to suit the current trend…
