Poll: Do You Clean Your Plate?


That's a pretty clean plate. [Photograph: Robyn Lee]

Those three words ("Clean your plate!") were heard many times during childhood and if you wanted ice cream later, you better believe you listened. But over time as smaller portions have become more important and with parental units no longer reminding us that there-are-starving-people-in-X, some of us have left the Clean Plate Club. Maybe for self-discipline reasons or just because the last bite doesn't taste as good as the others. Or, you still have issues seeing those last scraps get ignored. Take the poll! ยป
