Fresh Air

  • Hosted by Terry Gross

Open a window to contemporary arts and issues with people from worlds as diverse as literature and economics. Host Terry Gross is a veteran public radio interviewer known for her extraordinary ability to engage guests of all dispositions.

Get a breath of Fresh Air, weekdays on 89.9 WSUF, 103.3 WQQQ and WSHU AM at noon, and on 1340 WYBC at 3 p.m. If you're an evening listener, catch Fresh Air at 9 p.m. on WSUF and WQQQ.

Food writer Bee Wilson has a message of hope for parents struggling to get their children to eat their veggies: "As parents, we have a far greater power than we think we have to form children's tastes," Wilson tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross.

In her new book, First Bite, Wilson examines how genetics, culture, memory and early feeding patterns contribute to our food preferences. She says that a child's palate can be formed even before birth. And this insight can be helpful for parents who want their children to eat well and healthfully.
