It is easier to go for a cake order than to resolve for an avocado meal with lots of greenies. Several times, sellers of vegetables have to find different methods of preserving their perishables since they are not high in demand compared to the demand for junk makeup. Getting a cupcake is more preferred compared to having a big bowl of vegetable salad. Healthy foods are not enjoyed by many due to several reasons and these reasons cause the low demand of the same. But it is easy to wonder why this is so considering the health benefits that would be enjoyed by consuming these foods.
The taste of food affects their demand for certain food items. On a normal day, ignoring food being healthy or not, you would settle for a slice of pizza compared to having a big bowl of salad. Humans psychologically like sweet things since it makes them feel good. Dopamine and other make-happy hormones are released as you eat sugary food. This makes what you are eating pleasurable for consumption, and you would really want to have more even when done. It is not surprising that this happens by default making it uncontrollable as exhibited even in children.
Psychologically, healthy food mostly doesn’t contain a high percentage of sugar and would taste less good than those containing a high proportion of it. Naturally, you have to break out of the default want, irrespective of how badly you crave sugary food, to adopt a lifestyle of consuming healthy food. People are not ready to do this since it means they have to ignore the norms and adopt a diet that is weird to their body system. Not being able to stick to a proper healthy food plan will definitely reduce their request for the relative ingredients, making their sellers suffer loss.
Fast food can be bought at almost any location close to you irrespective of where you are. These fast foods are not as healthy as they contain high fat and sugar content, but the requests factored by their pleasurable taste make them high in demand almost everywhere. Because of the low patronizing rate of healthy food which basically are greenies, you might have to walk an extra kilometer or two before getting what’s needed for preparation or even a takeaway. Healthy food is not easily accessible and this makes retailers have lots of problems getting the ingredients considering even the cost of preservation in case there are leftovers.
The cost of obtaining healthy food ingredients or packs is a fine reason why people are not buying them. Since most healthy foods are not easily available, it becomes expensive wherever they are being sold. Someone who is on a healthy diet and has taken a long time to get to the store will not hesitate to pay any amount for what they want. This makes it quite unaffordable for some, resulting in forgoing plans for healthy food consumption. Establishing costs is also a problem faced by many intending sellers since they don’t only have to bother about the cost of getting the goods but also the cost of preserving them.
Most healthy foods are outside the sugar and meat bracket but inclusive in the greenies group. This makes it a challenge to sell healthy food items because of their perishable characteristics. If sales are low, there will be a huge loss if what is in stock is still too much. What is left to be done to the remnants is to dispose of them because their freshness would be gone, and they won’t be wanted by customers. As much as you might like to get lots of veggies and other healthy stuff out to the people, the cost alone might get them discouraged in adopting a healthy diet.
Preparing good food is a challenge of selling healthy diet food and ingredients. Fast food is preferred compared to homemade meals due to their preparation time and other requirements. Being called busy is a trend adopted by some, making them resolve to order food or prepare food that won’t take time at all. In return, it is even more difficult for them to get used to healthy diets due to their default lifestyle. All the mentioned factors are solely dependent on the consumer and not on the seller of healthy food. This is why it is quite difficult to get those healthy products to sell, to contrast with the psychological factors driving the consumers’ decisions.
