My apologies I am just getting to this post. It has not been an area I am so familiar with. But recently two names came across my desk that might be helpful. Brian Cook at the University of Oxford, as well as Sadaf Mollaei (University of Waterloo). They are both doing work on consumer behaviours and sustainable diets that might be helpful.
In short: nudging (choice architecture) is likely to work; information provision, much less likely unless it is linked directly to a barrier or goal; people’s pre-existing values and habits mediate the effect.
@AngelaMadden I did a search on the toolkit and found a great game that @edith-c also just told me about recently. Follow this link to download it, there are further links to lots more details if needed, and I’m sure there are several members in this toolkit that could engage with you on the topic, I for one would like to see this thread continue!

Short description: Great Meals for a Change: My brilliant colleagues and I created a fun and educational program to help people understand and experience sustainable food through sharing a meal while playing interactive games. We used the idea of social learning for behaviour change, which is helpful in bridging the knowledge-action gap that so many nutritionists are challenged by. The games are fun, fun, fun — and everyone should try it!
