The television cameras roll as Los Angeles lawyer David Chan places the first forkful of cashew chicken in his mouth. The crowd at Leong's Asian Diner in Springfield, Missouri, falls silent as he chews and squints in the glare of the lights.

They're popping mad

The queue from the Central branch of Shake 'Em Buns snakes around the block. For the eager food lovers waiting in line, this is a happening; those near the end of the queue kick themselves for arriving late and hope they will get to order before the shop closes. Most passers-by are utterly confused. 'What's this all about? Is there a celebrity? A sale?' Better than that.

Vary your strategies to solve the case of the reluctant eater

I'm having difficulty getting my daughter to eat her lunch at school. She often eats the snacks, but the healthy food comes home untouched. She says she does not have enough time to eat her food in the classroom and sometimes has to eat it in the playground. I spoke to her teacher, who said she would talk to the lunch supervisor, but it has made little difference.
