Effectiveness and Acceptance of Healthy Eating Nudges

Healthy eating nudges focusing directly on changing behaviors are three times more effective than cognitively-oriented nudges. But choosing the best nudge also requires considering their acceptance by consumers. We find that the acceptance of a nudge is inversely related to its actual effectiveness, but positively related to its perceived effectiveness.
