Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on food away from home in the United States, changes in this market over time, and how these changes raise questions for policymakers and others concerned about both agriculture and diet quality. Changes in what people eat can also affect nutrient intake and overall health. Model of household production provides a theoretical framework within which researchers can analyze the demand for food away from home. This article also states that empirical research also demonstrates the importance of a household's demographic characteristics. It also suggests how the size of the market for food away from home could change over time. Demographic trends in the population contributing to changes in demand are also discussed. The growing popularity of food away from home suggests that this market will be ever more important to the welfare of both consumers and agriculture.

Keywords: food, home, health, household production, demographic trends
