Unhealthy eating habits are associated with a greater risk of obesity and many chronic diseases. Historically, public health nutrition interventions have focused on education of the individual to induce dietary behavior change. However, given that many factors influence food choices, more comprehensive interventions that address these multiple factors are needed. Worksite cafeterias provide a unique opportunity to intervene at multiple levels of influence on employees eating habits. In this paper we used cafeteria sales data to evaluate the changes in purchases and the financial impact of implementing a healthy eating intervention using an environmental change and various promotional efforts to promote healthier food choices in a government worksite cafeteria.
