In a nutshell: This study looked at a range of supermarkets and associations of distance travelled to supermarkets and supermarket characteristics with shoppers’ body mass index (BMI). After adjusting for age, sex, income and car ownership, the authors found that food basket price in supermarkets was inversely associated with BMI of their shoppers, and they suggest careful manipulation of supermarket food pricing could be used as an intervention for reducing BMI.
