Food & Drink: Food for thought Why do children like sweets?

It is said that nearly all humans, especially Europeans, love the taste of sweetness. Some scientists believe that we have evolved to understand that sweet-tasting foods are safe to eat. This may be due to primitive humans gathering fruits, some of which were unripe or poisonous, and so tasted bitter. However, if the fruits were ripe, then the taste would have been sweet.

LETTER: Chocs away

YOUR article "Unhealthy facts behind healthy snacks" (Real Life, 3 September) was misleading. Much as I would like readers to abandon health bars and chomp away on Mars bars, as a scientist in the health industry, I must point out that the calorific/fat content quoted was not per bar for the chocolate but per 100g for the health bars.When comparing the Mars Bar (430cal) to the Frusli bar, the latter contains a mere 133cal and not 398 as quoted. Was this an example of excessive chocolate intake impairing reading ability?
