Assessing Consumer Willingness to Pay for Value-Added Blueberry Products Using a Payment Card Survey AgEcon
Hu, Wuyang; Woods, Timothy A.; Bastin, Sandra; Cox, Linda J.; You, Wen.
This study offers insights on consumer acceptance and willingness to pay for three value-added blueberry products. A modified payment card approach was used. The analytical framework adopted allows the researcher to attach straightforward economic interpretation to the estimated impacts of willingness to pay factors. Results show consumer socio-economic characteristics are important determinants but play different roles depending on the products. Information on health benefits may also be important. However, it is found that outside information or consumer self-stated awareness of blueberries’ health benefits have different impacts. These impacts may function as substitutes rather than complements to each other.

Childhood Obesity Risk and the Role of Primary Caregivers: A Triangular Semi-parametric Simultaneous Equations Approach AgEcon
Xue, Hong; You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
This essay investigates the impacts of primary care giver’s (PCG) time allocation and food expenditure choices on childhood obesity using national panel study of income dynamic (PSID) data. A triangular system of equations is derived and estimated under parametric and semi-parametric model settings. The performances of the two modeling strategies are compared using predictive ability measures with the aid of bootstrap method. Test results suggest relatively better performance of the semi-parametric model than parametric model. Nevertheless, the comparison of the estimates from both parametric and semi-parametric estimation indicates no dramatic changes in our findings. Our results do not suggest significant impacts of PCG’s labor force participation...

Consumption Time in Household Production: Implications for the Goods-Time Elasticity of Substitution AgEcon
Baral, Ranju; Davis, George C.; You, Wen.
The relationship between the goods-time elasticity of substitution with consumption time as an input and the goods-time elasticity of substitution without consumption time as an input is derived analytically. Under some reasonable assumptions, the goods-time elasticity of substitution is shown to be greater if consumption time is not included as an input. An empirical example of food production for single headed households is consistent with this result and indicates the goods-time elasticity of substitution is about 60% greater when consumption time is not included as an input than when it is included.

Do School Nutrition Programs Influence Child Weight? A Treatment Effect Analysis AgEcon
Capogrossi, Kristen; You, Wen.
Schools have significant influence on children’s health making health interventions targeting schools more likely to succeed such as the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and National School Lunch Program (NSLP). A key question that this literature currently concentrates on is to what extent do SBP and/or NSLP directly contribute to the observed outcome of child weight? This study assesses the impact by analyzing multiple simultaneous treatments on weight as the child progresses from 1st to 8th grade while acknowledging self-selection into the programs. Specifically, we utilize Average Treatment Effect on the Treated (ATT) and Difference-in-Differences (DID) methodologies to address the issue. We find that participating in only NSLP decreases the probability...

Household Fast Food Expenditures and Children's Television Viewing: Can They Really Significantly Influence Children's Dietary Quality? AgEcon
You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
Previous studies have found a strong relationship between food-away-from-home expenditures and television viewing, and children's diet. This study revisits this issue by examining the impact of household fast food expenditures and children's television viewing on children's dietary quality. Results indicate that both factors have statistically significant and negative effects. However, the elasticities of children's diet quality with respect to both factors are quite inelastic. Results also suggest that the effects of these two factors differ between children younger than 11 years old and children at least 11 years old. Relevant policy implications are discussed.

Household Food Expenditures, Parental Time Allocation, and Childhood Obesity AgEcon
You, Wen; Davis, George C..
The increased prevalence of childhood obesity is a major concern for society. This study aims at exploring the influence of the parents (especially parental time allocation choices) on children’s obesity-related health outcomes and examining the potential differences between the fathers’ and the mothers’ marginal effects. A household with two parents and one child is modeled. The household production theory and the collective household modeling structure are combined. The model treats the mother, the father and the child as three separate agents with individual preferences. The two parents’ interaction is modeled within the collective model framework by assuming that they will reach Pareto efficient resource allocation between them. In order to capture...

IMPACT OF FOOD AWAY FROM HOME ON CHILDREN'S DIET AgEcon
You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
Poor diet and inactivity are key factors for the high incidence of obesity among children in US. Using household production theory, we derive the demand for children's health and apply cross-section and pseudo-panel techniques. FAFH has negative impact on children's HEI in both analysis and significant in cross-section analysis.

Incentive Design to Enhance the Reach of Weight Loss Program AgEcon
You, Wen; Hashemi, Ali; Boyle, Kevin J.; Parmeter, Christopher F.; Kanninen, Barbara; Estabrooks, Paul A..
This study employed stated-preference methods to elicit individuals’ program participation preference towards different financial incentive attributes. The results of this study show promise for the use of carefully designed incentive programs to raise participation in weight loss programs. Results show that a fungible payment form is important for the incentive to be effective in reach (i.e., cash and grocery gift-cards are preferred over gym passes and waivers of insurance co-payments). Furthermore, immediate payment is preferred over delayed payment.

Nutrition Knowledge, Sensory Characteristics and Consumers’ Willingness to Pay for Pasture-Fed Beef AgEcon
Xue, Hong; Mainville, Denise Y.; You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
Nutritional value is an important attribute of foods whose benefits can only be experienced by repetitive consumption in long run. Consumers’ knowledge about the importance and usefulness of specific nutrients in a food product may influence their subjective expectation of the product’s health benefits which in turn is translated into their perception of the product’s value. At the same time, the sensory characteristics of food products affect consumers’ immediate consumption gratification. This study makes a unique contribution to the literature by exploring the roles that nutrition knowledge and sensory evaluation play in shaping consumers’ pasture-fed beef purchasing behavior through economic experiments. Our results suggest that beef products’ sensory...

Preparing Food at Home: What is the Labor Cost? AgEcon
Davis, George C.; You, Wen.
Food demand is an important component of the agricultural sector and much food preparation occurs in the home. While there is much information about the market cost of food, there has been no information about the preparation cost of food at home because there has been no data available on the quantity of time spent in food preparation. Using newly released time diary data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this paper provides the first known estimates of the cost of time in food preparation at home. We also consider a demographic profile comparable with someone who may be on Food Stamps and following the recipes based on the USDA Thrifty Food Plan, which is designed to help low income groups on Food Stamps.

Returns to Scale and the Effectiveness of Money Spent on the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program AgEcon
Baral, Ranju; Davis, George C.; You, Wen.
In operation for more than 40 years and now in all 50 states and 6 territories, the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program has become a cornerstone in US nutrition education. The aim of the program is to assist limited resource audiences to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and changed behavior necessary for nutritionally sound diets, and to contribute to their personal development and improvement of the overall family diet and nutritional well-being. However, very little is known about the effectiveness of this program, especially at the national level. The purpose of this research is to determine the effectiveness of money spent on the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program in satisfying its stated goals for adult participants....

Socio-economic Profiles of Nutrition Label Users AgEcon
Zhang, Ge; You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
This paper aims to explore the socio-economic profiles of the nutrition label users and focuses on seven key nutrients: calories, calories from fat, total fat, trans fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. The data are from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2005-2006 and Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII) 1994-96. Similar conclusions are drawn from both data sets: those consumers who are older, better educated, higher income, female, and have higher nutrition knowledge will have higher probability to use nutrition labels; those consumers who are in larger size families and being either Hispanic or black have lower probability of using nutrition labels.

Spillover Effects of SBP and NSLP on Academic Performance AgEcon
Capogrossi, Kristen; You, Wen.
The School Breakfast Program (SBP) and National School Lunch Program (NSLP) are two federally assisted school meal programs that currently serve over 31.7 million children each day. Most of the existing literature examines the nutritional quality of school meals with a handful studying the impacts on child weight. A couple of studies also examine whether SBP has impacts on academic performance, and, to our knowledge, no studies examine the direct or indirect effects of NSLP participation on performance. Using full-information maximum likelihood, we simultaneously estimate the child weight and academic performance production functions along with child choice equations and program participation equations to examine potential spillover effects of SBP and NSLP...

Taste and Visual Influences on Hispanic Consumers' Preferences and Willingness-to-Pay for Pasture-Fed Beef AgEcon
Luo, Jie; Mainville, Denise Y.; You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
Experimental Economics methods are used to determine Hispanic consumers’ sensory acceptance of pasture-fed beef and evaluate visual and taste influences on their overall preferences and willingness-to-pay (WTP). Two hundred and thirty-one Hispanic consumers in four experimental sites in Virginia participated in a laboratory experimental procedure where they visually examined and tasted pasture-fed and conventionally produced grain-fed beef, and then participated in a non-hypothetical Multiple Price Lists (MPL) experiment to determine their WTP. Hispanic consumers perceived significant differences between pasture-fed and grain-fed beef’s appearance and taste. Visual and taste acceptances are closely correlated to and significantly influence overall...

The Impact of Regional Food Cost Differences on the TFP Recommendations AgEcon
Zhang, Ge; You, Wen; Carlson, Andrea; Lin, Biing-Hwan.
The Thrifty Food Plan (TFP) adapts a national average price and stipulates that all foods should be prepared at home (FAH). Our purpose was to calculate the TFP with regional prices and add Food Away From Home (FAFH) into the TFP model. Measures were calculated and compared across the TFP, the regional models with FAFH, and low-income consumers’ diet pattern. The preliminary results indicated that considering moderate FAFH in the TFP yielded similar nutrient and food group composition as the TFP with FAFH added in it, while greatly increased the practicality and adaptability of the recommendations. However, the regional TFP costs are all larger than the TFP with FAFH cost. These findings may be used by nutrition educators to develop healthful FAFH...

The Influence of Endogenous Nutrition Knowledge on Consumers’ Willingness-To-Pay for Grass-Fed Beef AgEcon
Xue, Hong; Mainville, Denise Y.; You, Wen; Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr..
The relationship between nutrition knowledge and consumers’ food behavior has been debated for years. This may be partially attributed to the difficulty introduce by endogeneity of nutrition knowledge in econometric modeling. Using grass-fed beef as a vehicle, this paper investigates the impacts of consumers’ nutrition knowledge on their willingness to pay by accommodating the endogeneity problem using instrumental variable approach. Our results suggest that consumers’ nutrition knowledge significantly influences their willingness to pay for grass-fed beef. Gender and education are influential factors of consumers’ nutrition knowledge level.
