The efficacy of nudge theory strategies in influencing adult dietary behaviour: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Nudge Theory is a behavioral science theory that argues that positive reinforcement can lead people to make certain decisions. Nudge strategies used to impact nutritional choices include changes to the physical and/or food environment, availability of food (e.g., portion size, glass/dish size), or knowledge-based changes (e.g., labelling). This systematic review and meta-analysis demonstrates that overall, nudge strategies successfully increase healthy nutrition choices in adults aged 18-65.
