As I walked past a local pizza parlor just day, I noticed four or 5 kids peering into the parlor window as being a pizza maker tossed pizza dough into the air preparing another pizza pie.
Their faces have been literally pressed against the windowpane. They seemed completely memorized by that spinning, flat disk of pizza dough. A couple of kids were grinning form ear-to-ear and aiming at the pizza maker. It dawned on me this was one of “life’s little moments”. It forced me to crack a smile.
It was like they were spell bound. They had been aiming at the pizza developer and loudly debating the topic of the moment. What’s the “perfect toppings”?
There’s no question about it. There’s one specific food that kids have appreciated throughout the ages.
Indeed, it’s that well-known and all to recognizable pie that we never appear to out grow.
As a question of fact, a study performed by a U.S. Department of Agriculture statistician and home economist noted that in a three-day survey period, forty two % of children between the ages of 6 and 11 have ingested pizza. (Source: Smithsonian Magazine.).
In addition, based on a recent Gallup Poll, eighty two percent of kids ages 3 and eleven prefer “pizza” over chicken nuggets, hot dogs, cheese and macaroni, and hamburgers. As far as kids and nourishment is concerned, that’s some very stiff competition.
Indeed, it is unquestionable, pizza is for certain, one of many loved foods of the seemingly insignificant ones.
Even the youngest of children appear to be able to utter the term “pizza” at an incredibly early age. Youngsters as young as 3 years of age will lead people to a slice.
It’s apparent that kids like the taste of pizza. But I can’t help but think that the actual shape of the pie and the triangular shape of a single slice is vital to the fondness of theirs for this particular champion among foods. Pizza looks completely different than just about any food that kids love to eat.
Kids usually don’t care if it is a tiny, medium or perhaps large. They just want to make certain they get the little hands of theirs on the slice (or slices) that is coming their way.
Want to see many kids disappear out of your kitchen? Hand them a few of slices of their favorite pie and it is as magic. The talking stops therefore does the laughing. They grab their sice, turn out, as well as before ou know it they are out of there! Quietly they refuel on those flavorful slices. You will see them once again only when they return for more.
It is not surprising that there are almost 62,000 pizza parlors in America. here’s a lot of kids available that appreciate that statistic. The little ones re just waiting to pull the second slice from a piping hot scrumptious pie!
