Food Pantries Use Nutrition Information to Increase Healthy Food Orders

Food pantries select foods with higher nutritional quality, such as fresh produce, brown rice, and low-fat meats, when nutrition information is made available according to new research from the UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. Selections of less healthy options, such as sugary juice drinks, higher fat dairy, and higher fat meats, also decrease when nutrition information is available.
