C.A.N. You Eat Better?

The C.A.N. approach stands for food that is:

  • Convenient
  • Attractive
  • Normal

Yes, it’s easier to eat better if good healthy food selections are convenient to consume, attractive in appearance and in price and part of your normal day to buy and to eat. So, it makes a big difference whether the cookie jar or a bowl of fruit is sitting on your kitchen counter. And if your lunch is brought from home (like a layered lunch recipe) it is more convenient, attractively priced, saves time and it becomes a daily habit, then you are less likely to settle for pizza (which might have twice the calories) or a fast food combo meal (which might have three times the calories). Yes, these 3 simple strategies can make eating better happen!

And a home, that means having food conveniently prepared and stored in easy reach in clear plastic or glass containers, then you and your family are more likely to include a fruit or vegetable in their next meal or snack. After all, whose going to stop to peel and cut up fruit if they’re in a hurry. If there’s a grab and go individual portion of fruit salad there, then you CAN eat better!

The CAN system was developed by Brian Wansink and his associates at Cornell University where Dr.Wansink is a Professor of Consumer Behavior. Their research showed that when food in school cafeterias was displayed attractively, in easy reach and in a regular location then students where far more likely to make a healthy choice. For example, if the lowfat milk was in easy reach and the chocolate milk was placed further away, then more kids chose the lowfat milk.

For more information, I recommend Dr. Wansink’s latest book “Slim by Design”
