A taste of the science behind our eating habits


Fancy a sweet treat or a savoury snack? From the flavours you learned to love at birth, to your favourite mood food, your appetite has been influenced by what you eat.

The Science Museum hosts this free exhibition which reveals how your conscious mind is not the only factor to influence your eating habits - the hidden world of gut bacteria can also affect your cravings.

Through individual ancedotes, fascinating exhibits and cutting-edge science and technology, Cravings explores how food affects your body, brain and eating choices.

Take part in neuro-gastronomy experiments and help researchers uncover how what we see, hear, smell, touch and taste can alter our attitudes to food. Explore the potential of technology to control appetite through your nerves, compare how baby animals react to sweet foods, and find out about the world's first poo bank.

Visit Cravings from 12 February to find out more fascinating facts about how your food choices can control you. The exhibition continues until the end of 2015.
