This Special Issue on “Food Choice and Nutrition” deals with the relation between the food choices of different population groups or consumer segments and their impact on nutritional status, the improvement of dietary quality, food and nutrition-related behavior, food preferences, taste education, sensory characteristics of foods and their role in consumer choice, etc. It addresses why people make food choices, when they choose some foods instead of others, the influence of company (with whom) on the choice, and the aspects of where foods are eaten or chosen.
The Special Issue welcomes original articles based on interventions towards healthy, sustainable and/or ethical food consumption, such as e.g. nudging, social media campaigns or taste learning. It also welcomes systematic reviews or meta analyses on food choice and nutrition. It also welcomes qualitative research articles that provide strong knowledge on the issues around food choice and nutrition. It welcomes original research based on primary data obtained from questionnaires or surveys, or based on the secondary analysis of datasets such as demographic and health surveys or household surveys. The issue also welcomes papers on the adherence to current nutrition guidelines. It also welcomes papers dealing with diet-related lifestyle choices explaining the growing shift towards flexitarian, vegan, vegetarian or plant-based diets.
Although most people are aware of nutrition recommendations towards healthy eating (like five-a-day fruits and vegetables), compliance is low. This issue encourages cross-disciplinary research to provide better understanding of the road towards successful nutrition related behavior change in terms of food choices (e.g. healthier food consumption, sustainable food choices, ethical food choices, etc.) and the impact these choices have on nutritional status, dietary quality, food literacy and food preferences.
