Do Now:

Think about everything you have eaten since you woke up yesterday morning..

Were there times where you thought to yourself, “ Are there healthier options to eat?”

Yes? No?

What was one food you ate that you could have switched for a healthier alternative?

Answer in a complete sentence.

my answer
My answer:

I often think twice about every food I am about to eat.

Yesterday, I took my niece and nephew to Surf Taco, and order the vegan taco which contains mostly beans.

Afterwards I took the kids to cupcake magician in Red Bank. I could have taken them to perhaps a Frozen yogurt place and enjoyed our snack just as much.

UNDERSTANDING OUR FOOD CHOICES

Factors That Influence What We Eat

understanding our food choices1
Understanding Our Food Choices
  • Numerous factors influence choices:
    • Hunger, appetite, and food habits
    • Nutrition knowledge, health beliefs/concerns, and practices
    • Availability, convenience, and economy
    • Advertising and the media
    • Early experiences, social interactions, and cultural traditions
    • Personal preference, taste, and psychological needs
    • Values, such as political views, environmental concerns, and religious beliefs

Influential Factors in Making Food Choices

  • Availability: Americans enjoy the most abundant food supply in the world
    • We have the resources to maintain a large agricultural industry and import a wide variety of foods from all over the world
    • Americans tend to choose high-fat diets rich in meat, eggs, desserts, etc.
      • As a result, an abundant food supply has been linked to degenerative diseases
      • Degenerative diseases are sometimes referred to as diseases of affluence

Influential Factors in Making Food Choices

Income, Food Prices, and Convenience:

  • Extremely low incomes make it difficult to buy enough food to meet minimum nutritional needs which leads to…

Undernutrition: severe under-consumption of calories or nutrients leading to disease or increased susceptibility to disease; a form of malnutrition.

  • Many people perceive that a healthy diet costs more and is inconvenient.
  • Which can lead to the purchase of inexpensive, high fat, low nutrient “fast foods” and overnutrition

Influential Factors in Making Food Choices

Advertising and the Media:

  • The food industry spends more than $11 billion overall for food, beverage, and fast-food advertising
  • The media rank among the most influential sources of diet and nutrition information
    • Television, then magazines and newspapers, radio, family or friends, books, and the Internet: and finally to doctors
  • Advertising is not always created with the consumer’s best interest in mind. What is the advertisers goal???
perceived barriers to healthful eating
Perceived Barriers to Healthful Eating
  • Healthy foods are not always available from fast-food and take-out restaurants
  • It costs more to eat healthy foods
  • Too busy to take the time to eat healthfully
  • Too much conflicting information about which foods are healthy and which foods are not
  • Healthy foods don’t taste good
  • The people I usually eat with do not eat healthy foods
