Efforts to improve overall nutrition and health outcomes as well as narrow the gap across subpopulations will require a spectrum of micro- and macro-level approaches. These range from regulatory policies to more “nudge-like” designs that changes incentives to encourage consumers to make healthier choices, and the food/beverage industry to offer and promote healthier options. This talk will focus on fiscal policies as examples of how monitoring efforts, model-based approaches and evaluation studies help us understand mechanisms to inform on public health nutrition policymaking and help set improvements on nutrition and health outcomes on an upward spiral for all.
