Read/listened to during my commute.

We are not born knowing what to eat; as omnivores it is something we each have to figure out for ourselves. From childhood onward, we learn how big a β€œportion” is and how sweet is too sweet. We learn to enjoy green vegetablesβ€”or not. But how does this education happen? What are the origins of taste?

Eating well is a skill. We learn it. Or not. It’s something we can work on at any age.

In First Bite, award-winning food writer Bee Wilson draws on the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and nutritionists to reveal that our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors: family and culture, memory and gender, hunger and love.

We worry about the next five minutes when we should be thinking about the next five years.

The way we learn to eat holds the key to why food has gone so disastrously wrong for so many people. But Wilson also shows that both adults and children have immense potential for learning new, healthy eating habits. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our tastes and eating habits, First Bite also shows us how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.
