Our Attitude Determines Our Choice of Food and Health

Teacher Insights

Our attitude has a deep influence on our eating habits, according to a new research report.

The study done by University of East Anglia (UEA) showed that people with a positive attitude are likely to eat nutritious food. They would also be wise in the choice of food -either for promotion of health or preventing negative consequences leading to bad health. The findings reported in the journal 'Appetite' also found that high income consumers were likely to be more aware of nutritional value in food they consume.

The choice of food and eating habits have an impact on disease and illness. Wrong choice of food can lead to life style diseases as such diabetes or unhealthy conditions like obesity. This puts pressure on public health systems and also impact public health policy.
