The plan for leveraging a nutrition labeling system and the incentive approaches for promoting
healthy choices described in this report were developed through a review of the literature, expert
consultation, and consideration of ongoing initiatives to help consumers make healthy choices in
the retail setting. Expert consultation served to further develop the operational details of potential
approaches and to identify challenges, barriers, and opportunities for the likely stakeholders of
each approach. The technical expert rankings identified a set of possible approaches that were
determined to be both feasible and have substantial potential for impact. From that list, the study
team, in consultation with FNS, selected six approaches to develop further. Each of the six
approaches was developed to include a full description of the theoretical framework,
implementation, and suggested adjunct supports. The study team sought additional input from a
midsized regional retailer and a small retailer to refine some of the technical features of these
approaches.
