A national research agenda to support healthy eating through retail strategies
In the United States, children and adults consume more calorie-dense, nutrient-poor foods and beverages, and fewer fruits, vegetables, and whole grains than recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which aim to optimize health and reduce the risk of diet-related chronic disease.
The food retail environment is an important driver of dietary choices. Consumers acquire three times more calories from supermarkets and other grocery retailers than from away-from-home sources, such as restaurants and schools.
