Milan Furniture Fair 2010: Cookie Jar Encourages Healthy Eating

There are a lot of things that make you fat -- Lloyd has this great list. But often it comes down to eating a cookie when you should be eating a banana. If you (or people in your family) have this problem too, then the Piùsumenogiù family of kitchen containers I came across at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2010's SaloneSatellite event for young designers is just what you need.

Conceived by Industrial and communication design studio Anatomic Factory, the glass and ceramic containers each hold two things -- and the easy access goes to the healthier choice.

To get to the cookies in the Fruit Container/Biscuit Container, you first have to bypass the fruit, which is above. To dig into the processed white sugar in the Honey Jar/Sugar Jar, you have to skip by the nutrient-rich honey.

Eating healthier also makes you smarter. Neat concept. Though...if I really want a cookie, nothing will stop me.
