International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity 25/08/17 The impact of financial incentives on participants’ food purchasing patterns in a supermarket-based randomized controlled trial. Supermarkets represent an important environment in which to intervene to improve population-level dietary behaviors. RCTs provide high quality data in support of causal inference, however even RCTs have limitations, particularly in the context of complex, real-world, population-level nutrition interventions [15, 16]. In the SHELf RCT, individuals in the price reduction group were approximately twice as likely to report having increased proportionate purchasing of FV in study supermarkets from baseline to post-intervention, relative to all other groups.
Qualitative comments from a prior process evaluation substantiated these findings, and suggested that these differential changes in FV purchasing were related to the financial incentive provided by the 20% price reductions . SHELf is the first study, to our knowledge, to formally assess the patterning of proportionate food purchasing within the context of a supermarket-based RCT, albeit on the basis of self-reported data.

Abstract Introduction Animal agriculture has exponentially grown in recent decades in response to the rise in global demand for meat, even in countries like Italy that traditionally eat a Mediterranean, plant-based diet. Globalization related dietary changes are contributing to the epidemic of non-communicable diseases and to the global climate crisis, and are associated with huge carbon and water footprints. The objective of the study is to assess inequalities in health impacts and in attributable greenhouse gases-GHG emissions in Italy by hypothesizing different scenarios of reduction in red and processed meat consumption towards healthier consumption patterns more compliant with the recommendations of the Mediterranean food pyramid.
Methods We used demographic and food consumption patterns from national surveys and risk relationships between meat intake and cardiovascular and colorectal cancer mortality from IARC and other meta-analyses.

Abstract Background While food pricing is a promising strategy to improve diet, the prospective impact of food pricing on diet has not been systematically quantified. Objective To quantify the prospective effect of changes in food prices on dietary consumption. Design We systematically searched online databases for interventional or prospective observational studies of price change and diet; we also searched for studies evaluating adiposity as a secondary outcome. Studies were excluded if price data were collected before 1990. Results From 3,163 identified abstracts, 23 interventional studies and 7 prospective cohorts with 37 intervention arms met inclusion criteria. Conclusions These prospective results, largely from interventional studies, support efficacy of subsidies to increase consumption of healthful foods; and taxation to reduce intake of unhealthful beverages and foods.

Introduction Methods. LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE - 2013 - Do economic crises lead to health and nutrition behavior responses?: analysis using longitudinal data from Russia. Nikoloski, Zlatko and Ajwad, Mohamed Ihsan (2013) Do economic crises lead to health and nutrition behavior responses? : analysis using longitudinal data from Russia. Policy Research working paper, 6538. The World Bank, Washington, DC, USA. LSE expert's profile Using longitudinal data on more than 2,000 Russian families spanning the period between 2007 and 2010, this paper estimates the impact of the 2009 global financial crisis on food expenditures, health care expenditures, and doctor visits in Russia. The primary estimation strategy adopted is the semi-parametric difference-in-difference with propensity score matching technique. The analysis finds that household health and nutritional behavior indicators do not vary statistically between households that were crisis-affected and households that were not affected by the crisis.

Abstract Objective To develop a model of the psychological factors which predict people’s intention to adopt personalised nutrition.
Potential determinants of adoption included perceived risk and benefit, perceived self-efficacy, internal locus of control and health commitment. Methods A questionnaire, developed from exploratory study data and the existing theoretical literature, and including validated psychological scales was administered to N = 9381 participants from 9 European countries (Germany, Greece, Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, and Norway). Results Structural equation modelling indicated that the greater participants’ perceived benefits to be associated with personalised nutrition, the more positive their attitudes were towards personalised nutrition, and the greater their intention to adopt it.

This salad was inspired by a Kandinsky painting. Photo: Crossmodal Research Laboratory New winds are blowing in the grocery store in that consumers’ perceptions of quality are changing. This is the message from Professor Klaus G. . - The consumer’s perception of quality of a food product is no longer solely based on taste, convenience and healthiness of the product.
If the product carries a story with it that exudes a feeling of truthfulness, honesty and sincerity it seems authentic. . - An example of this is related to some consumers’ perceptions of organic products. Food emotions Encouraging consumers to try out new products is a challenge, since familiarity has a strong influence on whether a product is appreciated or not. . - Our ultimate goal is to promote health and well-being of course. . - In one such experiment we produced new types of honey by adding various ingredients.

Fifty-one individuals expressed interest in participating in the focus groups. Six focus groups with 31 participants in total were completed. The reasons for interested individuals not participating in the groups included other time commitments and an inability to speak conversational English. Most participants were female and were the main food purchaser and the person responsible for food preparation in their household (Table 1). When considering only children in the target age range of 2–16 years, the median age of participants’ children was 7 years (range: 2–16 years); however due to some participants also having children who were younger or older than the target range, the median age of all participants’ children was also seven, although ages ranged from 1 to 26 years old.

One of the goals of CLYMBOL is to understand how claims and symbols appear on food and drink products, in their context, and how this information can help guide consumer behaviour. In addition, a toolbox will be produced to support guidance in measuring the impact of claims and symbols on understanding, purchase and consumption behaviour. Findings will be used to design better communication activities and draw implications for policy makers and the European food industry. There are 14 partners working on the CLYMBOL project, which is more than half way through its planned four years.
It is split into six main work areas and receives partial funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration. Appetite Volume 89, 1 June 2015, What information do consumers consider, and how do they look for it, when shopping for groceries online? Open Access Highlights Using eye tracking and interviews, we study consumers' behaviour online. We further examine what consumers consider when purchasing groceries online. Consumers preferred to browse products' categories rather than use search terms.
Once on the product pages, participants paid most attention to pictures of products. We propose strategies to alert consumers to health-related information online. Abstract Previous research investigating what information shoppers seek when purchasing groceries has used either lab-experiments or observed shoppers in supermarkets. Keywords Front-of package labelling; Online grocery shopping; Label viewing; Pre-purchase information seeking behaviour Introduction Online grocery shopping is a relatively new environment that is rapidly growing in popularity.

EUFIC 29/05/13 The positive influence of family meals on children’s food choice. In a recent study, Dr Skafida from the Centre for Population Health Sciences and the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (University of Edinburgh) explored why family meals lead to better food choices among children. Eating the same food as their parents was most strongly associated with healthier diets in children. Food choice issues seem to play a more important role than type and place of meal. Using a representative sample of 2,332 five-year-old children from Scotland, face-to-face interviews were conducted with the mothers of these children. The quality of a child’s diet was measured by asking mothers about their children’s consumption frequency of various food categories.
The relationship between the quality of children’s diets and meal occurrence, meal habits and meal enjoyment, was investigated. Results showed that almost all children (99%) ate one main meal. Data obtained in this study has some limitations. For further information: Rev. Econ. Sociol.
