EAT Food Forum

Slim by design

EAT talk by Professor Brian Wansink at the EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2014

The physical environment impacts the choices we make. In lunchroom cafeterias in the US sales of fruit and salad has been shown to increase drastically with simple measures such as placing the fruit in a nice bowl and moving the salad bar to a new location that was easier to stop by.

This has implications for caloric intake and healthy food choices.
