When you take something delicious and familiar and then add it to something a little less desirable, it somehow makes that little less desirable thing magically turn into something fantastic. Cereal companies figured this out years ago: Take cardboard tasting crunchies and then adding sugar. As a parent and teacher, one of the tricks I learned on how to make things more desirable to kids is to add a few fun words to the mix. For example, when my daughter is craving something unhealthy at the grocery store, I'll say: "How about an avocado ice-cream?" She's immediately thrilled with the idea, because it has the word ice-cream. Then, I grab an avocado, turn it upside down (opposite side of where the stem was), and peel the top skin off so that the bottom looks like an ice-cream cone.
