This project aims to analyze the economics determinant of inequality in diet. Using Nielsen data we document a novel pattern on the relationship between healthy diet and income. We then build and estimate a tractable model in which difference in diet across income can be determined by preferences and/or by economic factors. We estimate the model so that it is able to account for the relevant stylized facts and we use as laboratory to study which policies could reduce inequality in diets across different income levels.
