These shaped fruit found in a Beijing grocery store look like sleeping babies. I don't know if this was done in an attempt to scare or invite people to eat its fruit, but the first one seems to be working.
Shaped fruit is an interesting strategy for grocery stores to adopt. It might just encourage more children to eat their fruits and veggies if they are shaped like an amusing character. The sleeping baby shapes might not be the best strategy as they are kind of creepy, but beloved characters from pop culture would be a great idea. North America could use this encouragement considering the health issues as a result of poor food choices among young people.
