Public Health is launching a pilot project with grocery stores and food retailers to help make healthy food choices the easy choice in the places you shop.

Where you shop for food influences how you shop for food. So, as public health professionals, if we want to encourage people to eat healthier food, we first have to find ways to encourage them to buy it.

That means working with grocery stores and food retailers to help them reshape their store environments so that they better support consumers to make healthier food purchases.

As we design this work, we want to hear from you in our Healthy Food Retail Environments Project Survey – what would influence you, as consumers, to make healthier choices in your grocery store?

Tell us what would make a difference to your grocery shopping experience – and help you improve your own diet and nutrition. Help us advance the health and nutrition of our communities – one grocery cart at a time.

Please take just a few minutes to take our Healthy Food Retail Environments Project Survey today.
