Samenvatting

The reinforcing value of food is a strong determinant of food intake, often overriding homeostatic signals of deprivation and satiety. For most people, food is a treat (reward), however, for some (e.g., people with eating disorders), it can be a threat
(punishment). Individual differences in reward and punishment processing (sensitivity to reward and punishment) are related to food reinforcement. Insight on the reinforcing characteristics of food might be of crucial interest for interventions (treatment) aiming to improve eating behaviour and diet quality.
