SAGE Publications - 2017 - Toward a better understanding of eating-behaviour through the concept of Perception of Nutritional Risk. Obes Rev. 2019 Sep 4. The first INFORMAS national food environments and policies survey in New Zealand: A blueprint country profile for measuring progress on creating healthy food environments. Unhealthy population diets are an increasingly important risk factor for obesity and diet‐related chronic diseases globally.1 A collective vision for global action to end all forms of malnutrition (including undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, and overweight and obesity) was recently outlined by the 10 commitments of the Rome Declaration on Nutrition2 and the policy recommendations in its Framework for Action, which was adopted at the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) in 2014.
In follow‐up of the Rome Declaration, the United Nations (UN) declared 2016‐2025 the Decade of Action on Nutrition.3 The Decade of Action on Nutrition aims to increase government policies and actions to improve population nutrition including increasing and strengthening monitoring efforts and accountability of actors in achieving the six global nutrition targets by 20254 and the nutrition‐related Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.5 However, there are critical gaps. BMC PUBLIC HEALTH 29/11/18 Availability of healthier vs. less healthy food and food choice: an online experiment. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, now cause the majority of premature preventable deaths worldwide [1, 2].
Patterns of unhealthy behaviour, including excessive energy intake, are key contributors to these NCDs, and are socially patterned, i.e. less healthy behaviours are generally more common amongst the poorest, contributing in turn to the substantial socioeconomic inequalities in life expectancy and years lived in good health. One strategy that may be effective in targeting these behavioural risk factors is to target the physical micro-environment, addressing the multiple cues – aspects of our environments that can influence behaviour – which act detrimentally by limiting healthier options or promoting less healthy ones .
This approach (sometimes termed ‘choice architecture’ or ‘nudging’) [4, 5, 6] is based on dual process models of behaviour [7, 8]. Primary hypothesis Secondary hypotheses.

To tackle this, government sought to stimulate the production and distribution of as much inexpensive food as possible, in particular starchy (high carbohydrate) staple commodities and their shelf stable processed products. BMC PUBLIC HEALTH 11/05/18 Prevalence of general and abdominal obesity in Portugal: comprehensive results from the National Food, nutrition and physical activity survey 2015–2016. More than 20% of the Portuguese population is obese, according to the WHO criteria, and six in each ten Portuguese are overweight (pre-obese or obese).
Obesity prevalence is higher in women (24.3% vs. 20.1%), and among the elderly (39.2%). The magnitude of obesity is massive around the world. According to a WHO report, in 2014, 11% of men and 15% of women aged 18 years and older were obese worldwide . Our estimate for Portugal is even higher that the worldwide prevalence (22% of adults and 39% of the elderly are obese), putting into evidence the importance and priority of this public health challenge in our country. In all WHO regions, women are more likely to be obese than men, corroborating our results, that could be further explained by factors related with the hormonal milieu and the environmental and behavioural determinants which predisposes women to excessive weight gain across the life span .

Rev. Saúde Pública vol.50 São Paulo 2016 Epub Aug 11, 2016 How to engage across sectors: lessons from agriculture and nutrition in the Brazilian School Feeding Program. In June 2009, a law was signed in Brazil requiring that 30.0% of the food budget of the national school feeding program should be used to purchase foods directly from family farms.
Specifically, Article 14 of Law 11,947a states that (except under specific circumstances): At least 30.0% of the foods in school meals should be purchased directly from family farms and local rural enterprises, giving priority to the resettled farmers (former landless people), traditional indigenous communities and “quilombolasb” as a means of supporting local economic development. By approving Article 14, Brazil became the first country to require by law a link between school feeding and agricultural production.
The law represented the most recent in a series of changes to a national school feeding program – known in Brazil as Programa Nacional de Alimentação Escolar (PNAE – National School Feeding Program) – which has a history dating back to 1954. Preventive Medicine Reports Volume 5, March 2017, The contribution of the USDA school breakfast and lunch program meals to student daily dietary intake. Highlights School meals are a nutrition safety net for low income children.
We assessed the contribution of both meals to children's dietary intakes. 47% of the day's calorie intake was provided by the two school meals. School meals provided 41% of vegetables to 77% daily milk. UNIVERSITE DE COPENHAGEN - MAI 2009 - THE USE OF INCENTIVES AND THE PROMOTION OF HEALTHY BEHAVIOURS THE CASE OF UNHEALTHY FOOD.

Brand loyalty strategy is much important nowadays since it can reduced enterprise operational costs such as promotion, cross selling and up selling cost In the increasing trend of our society to purchase fast food rather than normal type of restaurant makes this research is more interesting to focus on.

Obesity (Silver Spring). Author manuscript; available in PMC 2009 April 6. Monitoring the obesity epidemic in France: the Obepi. Obesity. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. People are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, exceeds 30 kg/m2.
Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food energy intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility, although a few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications or psychiatric illness. Evidence to support the view that some obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is limited.

Abstract Background: Childhood obesity is a critical public health problem. There is a crucial need to identify environmental factors that either encourage or prevent obesogenic behaviors. The home food environment is one of the primary environments in which children are exposed to food. Therefore, it is crucial to study how the home food availability influences dietary intake and weight status. PLOS 19/06/12 Big Food, Food Systems, and Global Health.
