Is Self-Serving Self-Serving? Who Serves Food Shapes Self-Evaluation and Eating Decisions

Consumers increasingly consume food served by others. Four studies indicate that who served food determines consumers’ attributions of responsibility depending on the food’s healthiness, that this feeling of responsibility shapes self-evaluative feelings after eating, and that the anticipation of this effect in a given context influences portion-size decisions before eating.
