Health by Design: Creating a Mindful Eating Environment

Why is it that we know an apple is healthier for us than a Snickers bar, but we choose to eat the Snickers bar anyway? Can a messy and disorganized refrigerator lead us to overeat? Does the serving size of packaged food make a difference in how much of it we consume?

Award winning researcher on eating behaviors, Brian Wansink, PhD, seeks answers in his studies at the Cornell Food and Brand Lab. He talks about various discoveries he and his lab have made about how we can redesign our homes, schools, restaurants, workplaces and grocery stores to encourage better eating habits. This talk is about solutions – ideas to act on that have been developed, tested, tweaked and analyzed in dozens of towns and cities across the U.S. and the world!
