GPS tracking shopping

The University of Kentucky recently was awarded a USDA grant totaling more than $100-thousand to use GPS trackers to study the patterns of adolescents and their parents when it comes to when, where, and how they buy food, and how their surrounding environment influences those choices.  Known as the “Adolescent and  Parent Food Activity Patterns as Drivers of Food Choice and Behaviors” project, officials hope to use the GPS tracking data to gain insight into buying habits and diet choices.
