Smarter Lunchrooms Movement

The Smarter Lunch Movement, developed by the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics, is dedicated to providing schools with the knowledge, motivation, and resources needed to build a lunchroom environment that makes healthy food choices the easy choice.

The Movement brings evidence from the fields of economics, marketing, and psychology into the school cafeteria.  Smarter Lunchrooms strategies are free or low-cost solutions that nudge students to voluntarily select the healthiest food in the lunchroom.  Smarter Lunchrooms can see less waste, higher participation, more satisfied students, and increased consumption of important nutrient-rich foods.
