Children prefer cereals that feature popular media characters such as Shrek on the package, regardless of how they taste, researchers say. "This tells us what we've probably already guessed: young children are going to be more likely to enjoy their cereal if it has one of their favorite characters on it," said Keri Gans, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, and author of the forthcoming book, The Small Change Diet.
