Allen & Unwin
Publication Date :
1 Jan 2008
Affluenza in developed societies is damaging our health, leading to increasing rates of obesity, diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Growth in individual food consumption is also threatening ecological sustainability. More than ever before, dieticians, nutritionists, and other health professionals need to promote healthy eating to the general public. Nutrition Promotion sets nutrition education firmly in a public health context, showing that nutrition promotion is most effective when targeted to particular population groups. Tony Worsley presents the history, theory and methods of nutrition promotion, and provides practical applications in a variety of settings and age groups. Drawing on international theory and research, and with international case studies and examples, Nutrition Promotion is an essential text for students and professionals in nutrition studies and dietetics, health promotion and public health programs.
