Project description

This project will examine how suboptimal food can be promoted among children (6-12 years), as they have a major influence on family consumption patterns. The effectiveness of hedonic, gain and normative framed messages in the retail environment will be tested among children. In addition, we will examine how these children influence their household through pester power and reverse socialization.
