Lunch trays may help you make better choices, study says

A recent study by Cornell University researchers shows that those who use a lunch tray are more likely to pick healthier food choices.

Jan. 6—Most of us are probably still working on our new years resolutions, with it being just a few days into 2014. And if you're anything like the majority of the population, shedding a few pounds is probably one of your new goals.

Fortunately, a recent study by Cornell University researchers in New York shows that if you want to lose some weight, adding a tray to your meal routine might help out.

The researchers discovered that people who use a tray when visiting a cafeteria are less likely to waste calories on dessert and more likely to pick up healthier choices. In fact, according to Colorado Newsday, the study authors found that participants were more likely to pick up a salad as a main course as well as a pudding because the tray enables them to pick more choices and waste less food.
