This article analyses the introduction of large retailers, with low prices and wide product ranges, to poor access, particularly in Seacroft, Leeds, in the United Kingdom. The results show that for residents with easy access to the new store, a significant average increase of half a portion per day is found. Attitudes to healthy eating, relative cost of fruit and vegetables, and deprivation are shown to be key factors at lower intake levels. Access remains a significant determinant of consumption. Hence it urges caution in accepting the conclusion that new supermarkets can benefit all, and suggest that policy makers should consider more targeted measures to help improve the worst diets
