Breaking Habits: The Effect of the French Vending Machine Ban on School Snacking and Sugar Intakes | JPAM Featured Article

There is consistent evidence showing that food and drinks sold from vending machines (VMs) have on average a higher energy-density, and access to VMs in schools has been associated with unhealthy diets and excess weight in children. From September 2005, the French government has banned VMs from all middle and secondary schools. This paper evaluates the impact of the ban on the nutrient intakes and school snack frequency of schoolchildren, and consider intakes from out-of-school meals.

Leaning On and Learning From Our Sister Associations | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

May 14, 2018 07:42 PM

As an applied microeconomist who studies the causes and consequences of a range of public policies, I have always felt like APPAM is my primary intellectual home. Part of this fondness goes back to my first experiences at the Fall Research Conferences in the early 2000's. A core group of scholars studying policy issues related to sexual minorities would organize a research session each year. Relative to those first few years of mostly empty rooms, we have come a long way.

APPAM experts answer these questions, as well as address the issue of how to inform policymakers grappling with the effects of the policy within their own communities.
