Using Food Prices to Investigate Nutrition and Healthy Eating

Using Food Prices to Investigate Nutrition and Healthy Eating

“In these communities, where people are marginalized in various ways, its often difficult to get enrolled and remain enrolled because there are sets of hurdles to demonstrate eligibility, where it’s just hard to demonstrate. People are eligible, but its difficult to comply with the program. And so, we do have people who are eligible, as intended by congress, but then the state administrative bodies that run the program may not be able to reach everyone.”

In this episode, Dr. William Masters discusses the economics of nutrition and food prices. He debunks the misconception that healthy eating must be expensive and explains what can be done to improve food affordability for all families. 


Will Masters is an economist at Tufts University, in the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. He studies the development of agriculture, food production and food choice around the world.
