Healthy-Shopping Dynamics: the Relative Healthiness of Food Purchases Throughout Shopping Trips

The obesity epidemic is largely driven by the overconsumption of unhealthy foods. Whereas existing research predominantly studies the healthiness of single food purchases, we investigate how the relative healthiness of a series of sequential purchases evolves throughout a single shopping trip. Our research demonstrates healthy-shopping dynamics, especially among overweight shoppers.
