improving health outcomes

“Consumers’ dietary choices, and their chronic disease risks, are shaped and constrained by their knowledge, preferences related to taste and convenience, food afford- ability and accessibility, industry advertising practices and, as well, broader socio-economic determinants of health. Ultimately, consumers’ dietary risks depend on what they (or, in the case of children, their parents) choose to buy, prepare, and eat. Thus, consumers must play a central role in managing their own dietary risks.”
