Retail food stores can support good health or undermine it. Stores determine the range of choices their customers have, and the ways they market products influences what and how much people buy. Checkout aisles are marketed in a way that induces shoppers to make unplanned impulse buys and most only offer snack choices of candy, chips, and soda. Despite high rates of diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, retailers push extra calories on us at every turn. Join us in urging retailers to rethink checkout by replacing junk food with healthier choices.
