Healthy Diets and Empty Wallets: the Healthy=Expensive Intuition

The authors propose that consumers believe that healthier food is more expensive than less healthy food. Through the course of five studies, we examine consumer intuitions about the relationship between healthiness and the price of food items, demonstrating the nature, strength, and implications of this healthy = expensive intuition.
