The determinants of healthy eating and nutrition are multifaceted and range from individual determinants, the social environment, the physical environment, and the economic environment. All these determinants are included in the interdisciplinary area of public health nutrition, which covers research, interventions, programs, practices, and policies to improve nutrition, nutritional status, or nutrition-related disease of populations. The individual factors include behavioral factors and characteristics that affect the choice of food, e.g., preferences, perceptions, nutritional knowledge, or psychological factors. The social and physical environment in which one lives includes the culture, family, or friends but also social media and all infrastructures that affect food availability, e.g., food outlets in the vicinity of work sites, schools, or home. Within the broader perspective is the economic environment, which includes prices of food, food security, or food marketing.
For this Special Issue on “Second Edition of Nutrition, Diets, and Public Health”, we are interested in original research, narrative reviews, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses concerning new evidence on the relationships between nutrition, diet, and health within a broad public health context. The topics we are interested in are broad, and we would be delighted to have highly up-to-date topics such as plant-based diets, food marketing, and ultra-processed foods included.
