2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Systematic Reviews

Systematic Review Question

What is the relationship between neighborhood and community access to food retail settings and individuals’ dietary intake and quality?

Conclusion Statement

Emerging evidence suggests that the relationship between access to farmers’ markets and produce stands and dietary intake and quality is favorable. The body of evidence regarding access to other food outlets, such as supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience and corner stores, and dietary intake and quality is limited and inconsistent.
