In a study of fat‐spreading habits of children, it was found that most children were already spreading by the age of five years and that their habits did not appear to change during the age range of five‐11 years. Few factors were found to explain individual differences in amount spread on bread, but families choosing spreads for spreadability may encourage a greater amount of spread, children copying others may use more, and children having difficulty using knives may use less spread than others.
