Farmers' Market Utilization among Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Recipients in New Orleans, Louisiana: Preliminary Findings.

The results support the incorporation of promotional methodology that combines internet-based mobile technology and existing services (eg, WIC) as a viable strategy to improve farmers' market use among low-income populations.

Increasing Use of a Healthy Food Incentive: A Waiting Room Intervention Among Low-Income Patients.

Mixed Methods Evaluation of a Produce Prescription Program for Pregnant Women

The PRx model is an innovative approach to increase access to produce among low-income pregnant women and should aim to increase voucher redemption and examine ways to implement PRx in more prenatal settings.

Community-based nutrition education and hands-on cooking intervention increases farmers’ market use and vegetable servings

Findings suggest that fresh produce provision coupled with nutrition and culinary education can positively impact shopping and dietary behaviours and identify facilitators and barriers to shopping at FM and a variety of food waste reduction techniques.

Promoting access to fresh fruits and vegetables through a local market intervention at a subway station

When implemented in strategic locations such as transport hubs, AFS like F&V markets offer a promising strategy to improve F &V access among populations that may be constrained in their food acquisition practices, including low-income populations and those relying on public transportation.

Effects of a Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program With Expanded Education for Low-Income Adults

Combining expanded nutrition and financial literacy education with produce prescriptions improves low-income adults’ financial and food resources, preference, knowledge, purchase, and consumption of locally grown vegetables over single-level interventions.

Cluster randomized controlled trial of a mobile market intervention to increase fruit and vegetable intake among adults in lower-income communities in North Carolina

Mobile markets may help improve F&V intake in lower-income communities using a group randomized controlled trial using Veggie Van, a mobile produce market that sells reduced-cost locally grown produce and offers nutrition and cooking education.



5 a day fruit and vegetable intervention improves consumption in a low income population.

Effect of a targeted subsidy on intake of fruits and vegetables among low-income women in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children.

Participants valued fresh fruits and vegetables, and adding them to the WIC food packages will result in increased fruit and vegetable consumption.

Correspondence of the NCI Fruit and Vegetable Screener to repeat 24-H recalls and serum carotenoids in behavioral intervention trials.

Alternative FVS scoring procedures and a 1-item screener lowered correlations with 24HR as well as serum carotenoids but alternate scoring procedures generally improved estimations of servings.

Accuracy and precision of two short screeners to assess change in fruit and vegetable consumption among diverse populations participating in health promotion intervention trials.

Findings suggest multiple 24HR at multiple time points in adequate sample sizes remain the gold standard for FV reports and biases in FVS estimates may reflect participants' lifestyles and sociodemographic characteristics and require further examination in longitudinal samples representative of diverse populations.

Evaluating the Implementation of a Hospital Work-Site Obesity Prevention Intervention

Although the intervention was not effective in changing BMI on a population level, a dose response was observed, in which persons who used more of the intervention components and materials were more likely to prevent weight gain.

The efficacy of behavioral interventions to modify dietary fat and fruit and vegetable intake: a review of the evidence.

Interventions appeared to be more successful at positively changing dietary behavior among populations at risk of (or diagnosed with) disease than among general, healthy populations.


The hypothesis that the majority of cases of type 2 diabetes could be prevented by the adoption of a healthier lifestyle is supported.
