M8. Nostalgia Increases Healthy Attitudes and Behaviors

This research tests nostalgia as a motivation force in healthful food consumption. Across three studies we find support for the hypothesis that nostalgia increases positive attitudes and behaviors toward healthy food, but decreases them toward unhealthy food. Moderated mediation evidence demonstrated this effect is driven by nostalgia-evoked social support.
