Nutrition Review paper published in open access

My review paper--"Does Food Marketing Need to Make Us Fat? A Review and Solutions"--has now been published by Nutrition Reviews. It is available in open access here.

In this article, Brian Wansink and I show the different ways marketing actions (communication and pricing, but also changes in the food's quality and quantity and changes in the eating environment) make people eat more than they realize. In addition, we provide multiple examples of win-win strategies for public health and corporate profits designed by savvy markers concerned about public health or about the sustainability of their business. We have also added multiple suggestions of innovative marketing strategies that benefit consumers and food companies.
