International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity 25/12/17 Menu-engineering in restaurants - adapting portion sizes on plates to enhance vegetable consumption: a real-life experiment. Context and design The study was conducted within the public-private partnership “Meer groente & fruit voor iedereen” (More vegetables and fruit for everyone), which was sponsored by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Fresh Produce Centre.
The study started in May 2015 and was implemented in three restaurant locations of a major restaurant chain in medium-sized cities in the Netherlands. The participating restaurants were selected by convenience sampling, and to obtain a representative sample, restaurants were distributed throughout different parts of the Netherlands. Furthermore, the particular restaurant chain was selected because it receives guests from all levels of the population, further enhancing the representativeness of the data. To recruit restaurants, an email was sent that explained the rationale of the study and included an invitation to sign up to participate in the study. Sample size Approximately 400 guests visited the restaurants each evening. Procedures. PLOS 30/03/17 Dietary changes needed to reach nutritional adequacy without increasing diet cost according to income: An analysis among French adults.
Abstract Objective To explore the dietary changes needed to achieve nutritional adequacy across income levels at constant energy and diet cost.
Materials and methods Individual diet modelling was used to design iso-caloric, nutritionally adequate optimised diets for each observed diet in a sample of adult normo-reporters aged ≥20 years (n = 1,719) from the Individual and National Dietary Survey (INCA2), 2006–2007. Diet cost was estimated from mean national food prices (2006–2007). Results The cost of observed diets increased with increasing income quintiles. Conclusions In France, the dietary changes needed to reach nutritional adequacy without increasing cost are similar regardless of income, but may be more difficult to implement when the budget for food is lower than 3.85 euros/d.

Abstract Objectives This study examined the effect of a 10 and 20% meal price increase when choosing French fries and a 10 and 20% meal price reduction when choosing fruit for dessert on university students’ purchasing behaviour in an on-campus restaurant.
The moderating effect of gender was also investigated. Secondly, this study aimed at gaining further insight into reasons why these price manipulations did or did not change students’ purchasing behaviour. Br J Nutr. 2016 Apr;115(8):1498-507.

ENDOTEXT 08/06/15 Lifestyle Changes: Effect of Diet, Exercise, Functional Food, and Obesity Treatment, on Lipids and Lipoproteins. Nutrition Journal 2010, 9:36 Relative validation of a food frequency questionnaire for national health and nutrition monitoring. The DEGS-FFQ showed a reasonable to good agreement in ranking of participants towards their intake for most food groups compared to two 24-hour dietary recalls.
The spearman's correlation coefficients for intakes measured by the FFQ and the 24-hour dietary recalls ranged between 0.15 and 0.80 with most values of 0.30 and higher. The observed correlation coefficients were in a similar range as observed in other validation studies [15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20]. For example, a validation of the FFQ used in the German EPIC cohort showed Spearman rank correlation coefficients between the FFQ and twelve 24-hour dietary recalls between 0.14 and 0.90 . Although a direct comparison is difficult because of differences in food classification, similar correlations were seen for coffee and tea, bread, salty snacks, spreads, fruits, legumes, potatoes, soft drinks, milk, cheese and processed meat.
The validation study was performed in the ongoing survey NEMONIT which offered many advantages. J Am Diet Assoc. Author manuscript; available in PMC Dec 12, 2013.

PLOS 30/06/16 Beyond Wishful Thinking: Integrating Consumer Preferences in the Assessment of Dietary Recommendations. Abstract Convenience, taste, and prices are the main determinants of food choices.
Complying with dietary recommendations therefore imposes a “taste cost” on consumers, potentially hindering adoption of those recommendations. The study presents and applies a new methodology, based on economic theory, to quantify this taste cost and assess the health and welfare effects of different dietary recommendations. Then, by comparison of those effects, we identify socially desirable recommendations that are most compatible with consumer preferences (i.e., that best balance health benefits against”taste cost”) and should be prioritized for promotion.

Abstract Obesity is a global public health priority.
Restrained eating is related to obesity and total energy intake but associations with the eating patterns are unclear. We examined the associations of restrained eating with the size and frequency of intake occasions among 1213 British adult (19–64 y) participants in a cross-sectional analysis of the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey 2000. The Dutch Eating Behaviour Questionnaire assessed restrained eating. Overall intake occasions were all energy consumed in a 60 min period.

BMC 23/11/15 Urban-rural disparities in child nutrition-related health outcomes in China: The role of hukou policy. Bivariate results Table 1 displays descriptive statistics for the full study sample and separately for children with different residence-hukou status.
Approximately 25 % of the sample resides in urban areas. But 12.4 % of these urban residents have rural hukou, and 13.7 % of those living in rural areas have urban hukou. Thus, place of residence does not define one’s hukou status in many cases.

British Food Journal. 02/2007; Consumer perception about fast food in India: An exploratory study. ARS USDA - JUNE 2015 - AgResearch Magazine - "Quick Serve" Foods Slow To Change. When it comes to eating out and eating healthy portion sizes, knowledge is power. Agricultural Research Service-funded scientists investigated trends in portion sizes and the calorie, sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat content of popular meal combos at three U.S. quick-serve chain restaurants. They found little change in portion sizes during a period of 18 years. On a positive note, the study recorded a decline in trans fat content of French fries that followed the first local legislative ban on trans fats in restaurant foods, which was passed by New York City in 2006. The study was led by nutritional biochemist Alice H. Lichtenstein and colleagues. The researchers reported that overall they did not find changes in product portion sizes—as assessed using total calories—or product reformulation by the restaurants to become consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

In this section, we first present a general description of the advertisements, their location, and the main themes discerned. For the purposes of this analysis, we focus on just two locations–rural villages and their nearby small or secondary roads, and urban cities and their nearby principal roads. Intermediate or peri-urban locations are not addressed in this study. Each theme is presented and, where pertinent, a photograph illustrating the theme is provided. In some instances, brief and directly relevant comments are made about a specific theme with a more extensive commentary appearing later.

VOX 06/07/14 Map: Here's how much each country spends on food. When droughts or crop failures cause food prices to spike, many Americans barely notice. The average American, after all, spends just 6.6 percent of his or her household budget on food consumed at home. (If you include eating out, that rises to around 11 percent.) Americans spend a smaller share of their income on food than anyone In Pakistan, by contrast, the average person spends 47.7 percent of his or her household budget on food consumed at home. In that situation, those price spikes become a lot more noticeable. The US Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service keeps tabs on household expenditures for food, alcohol, and tobacco around the world. Americans, it turns out, spend a smaller share of their income on food than anyone else — less even than Canadians or Europeans or Australians: Note that the map above is based on data for food consumed at home — the USDA doesn't offer international comparisons for eating out, unfortunately.
