What's bigger than a picnic basket and even better than one in the eyes of black bears that call Yosemite National Park home? Minivans driven by families who leave behind a trail of juice boxes, Cheerios and coolers carrying other snacks, according to a study published in the Journal of Mammalogy.

Your article ("It's Come to This: Carry-On Steak," Feb. 19) gave me some great ideas for my next transcontinental flight. I have been flying between Australia and the U.S., and within the U.S., for many years and I have deplored the decline in domestic flight food services. From your story, it is even worse compared with my last visit more than a year ago. So I'll follow your advice and make up my own on-board snacks. I've been to some pretty neat delis around the Westside of L.A., so there's maybe the starting point.

When the holiday cookies, sugar plums, pie and other treats prove especially tempting this year, give yourself an early gift: Unwrap a stick of chewing gum. Not only can chewing gum help suppress your appetite, but it also appears to cut the craving for sweets, a study has found. The result is a slight, but measurable, decline in calorie consumption, just the thing that could help you maintain your weight at a time of year when many people gain a few unwanted pounds.
