When you think about it for a second, almost definitely not. They're exactly the same stuff as bread, just more burnt, and so more likely to have the nutritious stuff broken down, and contain carcinogens. Indeed a quick internet search "busts the myth" that crusts are healthier.
So when my baby wasn't very hungry, and I was deciding which bits of the roll to give him for his last few bites of supper, why did I catch myself thinking "let's give him the crust, it's healthier"?
I guess the virtue theory of diet runs deeper in my subconscious than I realized. "If you are virtuous, and eat unpleasant foods, then they are good for you and you will grow strong and healthy." Usually when we have biases we can run rings around ourselves justifying them. It's good to occasionally catch ourself so red handedly in the process of magical thinking that we just have to accept we're occasionally irrational and work on rectifying that.
