The Impact of Large Versus Small Menu Size on Calorie Estimation

This research proposes that consumers estimate an item’s caloric content as greater (less) in a menu with more (fewer) choices. We suggest that consumers estimate higher calories in a larger menu because they use an average caloric content of a menu as a proxy within the subjectively formed calorie range.
