Given the prevalence of , it makes sense that we try to guard against “cheap and unhealthy” food in an effort to be healthy. But we may be overcorrecting, forgetting that “cheap and healthy” food exists too.
In fact, the study’s researchers found that a high price tag will even convince consumers that a certain food is healthful.
“. The findings suggest that price of food alone can impact our perceptions of what is healthy,” Rebecca Reczek, co-author of the study and professor of marketing at The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business, said in a statement.

And sometimes that’s the truth: Organic produce, wild-caught seafood and food that accommodates chronic conditions, such as gluten-free food, all . But other times, the nutritional value of food ranks all the same.
In one experiment, Reczek’s team gave a group of participants a new food product called “granola bites.” Some participants were told the product was very healthy. Other participants were told the bites had little nutritional value. Participants who were told the granola bites were good for them rated the snack as more expensive than the participants who thought the bites were unhealthy.
