On nutrition: Debate raging over what constitutes ‘healthy’ food

It’s hard to know whom to trust—even about food labels.

Every day, Americans sift through contrary opinions on politics and cultural issues; now they are questioning which foods deserve the label “healthy.”

A recent survey from the International Food Information Council Foundation suggests that conflicting information about the nutritional value of foods has consumers second-guessing their choices. 

CNN reports:

About eight in 10 survey respondents said they have found conflicting information about what foods to eat and what foods to avoid — and more than half of them said the conflicting information has them second-guessing the choices they make[…]

This poses a problem for communicators looking to influence dietary choices. Offering valuable guidance requires a firm knowledge of how Americans make judgments about nutrition and how they get the data that inform their opinions.

CNN wrote:

Many respondents said they turn to their friends and family for guidance on food choices, even though they see dietitians and health care professionals as the most trusted sources for guidance.

The term “healthy” may have a limited effect on consumers as well. Consumers regularly base purchases on taste and price before considering the nutritional value of their foodstuffs.

Liz Sanders, a co-author of the survey remarked:

“Our biggest trend over time has to do with purchasing factors, and we know that taste and price have always been the top two factors that have driven purchasing, with healthfulness following behind in the third spot[…] In terms of what is healthy, we know that it doesn’t always beat out what tastes the best or what has the best price, in terms of impacting a food purchase.”

The Food and Drug Administration recently launched efforts to redefine the word “healthy” for use in marketing food products. Some, like Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Roxanne Sukol, contend that the word healthy should be scrapped entirely and replaced with a more appropriate term, such as “nutritious.”

To command authority on the subject, use credible sources. The government annually publishes dietary guidelines, which can be used to substantiate a campaign. 

Other messaging can target two key factors that drive food purchasing: taste and price. 

  • Advocate Health publishes healthy recipes on its brand journalism platform.
  • Mayo Clinic uses Pinterest to share healthy recipes.
  • Veggie cheat sheets and other infographics can help make food prep easy.

Communicators, how do you go about earning public trust on nutrition issues?
