Geographic Differences in the Relative Price of Healthy Foods

by Jessica E. Todd, Ephraim Leibtag, Corttney Penber
Paperback, 40 pages, 2011, $20.00
ISBN: 9781437988352

Although healthy foods can be affordable, if less healthy foods are cheaper, individuals may have an economic incentive to consume a less healthful diet. Using the Quarterly Food-at-Home Price Database, the authors explore whether a select set of healthy foods (whole grains, dark green vegetables, orange vegetables, whole fruit, skim and 1% milk, fruit juice, and bottled water) are more expensive than less healthy alternatives.

They find that not all healthy foods are more expensive than less healthy alternatives. They also find considerable geographic variation in the relative price of healthy foods. This price variation may contribute to geographic variation in diet and health outcomes. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
