The Role of Peer Identification in Shaping the Healthy-Eating Beliefs of Children

This research investigates how peers influence children’s beliefs about healthy food. Results show that children modify their beliefs according to the identity that is activated: a consistent social identity with that of their peers helps children avoid group exclusion. These identities influence the way children process information about healthy food.
