Do you really control your food choices?

Dr Helen Walls (Assistant Professor)
Laurence Blanchard (Research Fellow)
Every day we make dozens of choices related to food, from what to eat for breakfast to whether or not we buy a chocolate bar at 3pm, and these can have a major impact on our health. How do we make these decisions and what influences them? Are we sure these decisions are entirely our own? Can healthier options be made more popular?

Tonight, Helen and Laurence will combine their extensive knowledge on what influences what we eat to answer these questions and make us think twice about our food choices.
