The company My Fruity Faces is making edible stickers, to put on pieces of fruit to get children’s attention. Cornell University researchers recently reported that kids are more likely to eat apples with Elmo stickers on them than without.
The stickers are made in Washington state by a company that makes cake decorations. They dissolve in the mouth, have no calories and are made from cellulose, sugar and baking soda. They have a strawberry-peachy flavor that doesn’t affect the taste of the fruit or vegetable.
