How to get a man to eat fruit

  • Step 1. Clean out the refrigerator so that it is free of clutter.

  • Step 2. Put all fruit in clear plastic or glass containers in front of everything else. Important note: DO NOT, under any circumstances, put the fruit in the draws specifically for fruit in your refrigerator. He will never find it and it will rot.

  • Step 3. Any fruit that can be left out on the counter should be put in an attractive bowl, neatly arranged and in plain sight.

Tonight, my husband pulled out the bowl of grapes (in a clear glass bowl) and munched on them while watching television. Amazing. I've been trying to get him to eat fruit on a regular basis for at least four years. As my father often says, his world is only one row deep. So, remember, if they can't see it, it doesn't exist in their world.
