This topic introduces students to an ecological approach to food and nutrition, by considering individual, social and environmental dimensions of food consumption decisions. We are interested in the subject of food consumption decisions because of their relationship to health behaviours and health outcomes. The topic examines psychological models, social determinants of health, and environmental influences on food consumption. Taking this ecological perspective is important for health professionals intending to promote healthier food eating for individuals and population groups.
The aim of this topic is to develop students' capacity to consider food and nutrition issues from a broad ecological perspective including individual, social and environmental dimensions of food consumption decisions.
