Nudging Vegetables: Promising Research Results
This webinar explores how nudge-based approaches increase vegetable consumption among young adults in mass eating contexts.
“Eat your vegetables” is a refrain many university students hear so often that they tune it out. But what if they were quietly nudged to choose better options while in campus food courts, cafeterias and other mass-eating contexts? Would they make better choices? Two University of Guelph researchers have been testing new ways to subtly prompt students to choose more fruits and vegetables at campus dining facilities. Their results from four recent studies are promising and will be relevant to health promoters, food service managers and others interested in the potential of “nudging” to promote healthier food choices.
This webinar was a collaboration between Nutrition Connections and the University of Guelph.
