Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to examine how the share of expenditure on foods with high sugar is influenced by purchasing behaviour and household characteristics in Turkey. Design/methodology/approach -Food purchases of a large representative sample of Turkish households (n = 10,682) were observed over a two-year time span. A linear mixed effects model is estimated to analyse the drivers of households' share of expenditure on foods with high sugar in a longitudinal setting.
