Most discussions and debates about how to address the obesity problem, and indeed most nutrition behaviors in the US, usually turn to the lack of opportunities for people in inner-city neighborhoods to purchase fresh products, very little variety in the food purchase choices they have, and higher prices. The flight of grocery stores from these urban areas has been a major contributor to this problem. Today's NYT tells the story about one area in Philadelphia where grocery stores are returning for the first time in 8 years, and how The Food Trust's Supermarket Campaign is putting money into marketing in a unique, yet thoroughly commercial, way. And the research on how this 'place' or availability change may affect eating behaviors is being conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences - good for them! If you're looking for nutrition programs that focus on the "1P" of place - take notes.
