A review on economic incentives and nutritional behavior among children in the school setting
just published online in the journal Nutrition Reviews, was to examine the existing literature on the effectiveness of economic incentives for producing sound nutritional behavior in schools Altogether, 3,472 research publications were identified in the systematic search, of which 50 papers were retrieved. Of these, 30 publications representing 28 studies were regarded as of highe enough quality and relevant. The review indicates that price incentives are effective for altering consumption in the school setting. Other types of economic incentives have been included in combined intervention schemes, but the inclusion of other intervention elements makes it difficult to draw conclusions about their effectiveness.
