Eating an apple before shopping prompts shoppers to buy more fruits n veggies

ANI | 30 Apr 2015, 08:58 pm
New Delhi, April 30 (ANI): A new study has suggested that an apple a day brings more apples your way. Researchers found that shoppers can be primed to buy more produce when they eat a healthy item before shopping and that individuals who ate an apple sample before shopping bought 25 percent more fruits and vegetables than those who did not eat a sample. Researchers explained that having a small healthy snack before shopping can put people in a healthier mindset and steer them towards making better food choices. This finding indicates that what influences shoppers behavior after consuming a sample is not the actual healthfulness of the sample but its perceived healthfulness.
