Mango and cinnamon revealed as most exciting tastes for babies

08 NOVEMBER 2013 While you might think that babies' favourite fruits are bananas and apples, it turns out their preferences are more exotic than many people assume — scroll down for top ten exciting tastes for babies.

Mango and cinnamon have been revealed as the "most thrilling tastes for babies" in a taste trial tested out on little ones.

Babies' physiological reactions were measured when they tried a variety of different fruits, vegetables and spices and the results were surprising.

 



The study, created by Ella's Kitchen in partnership with Thrill Laboratory, measured the tots' Galvanic Skin Response – that is the micro-fluctuations in their sweat levels.

Researchers combined these scores with facial expression and body language analysis from parents to determine how positive their responses were.

 



A rise in Galvanic Skin Response, together with positive facial analysis from parents, expressed just how excited the baby was when tasting the food.

The bespoke 'thrill-o-meter' test revealed the top 10 most exciting tastes for babies:

1. Mango
2. Cinnamon
3. Lemon
4. Coconut
5. Banana
6. Papaya
7. Red pepper
8. Apricot
9. Sweet potato
10. Carrot
