What is America Eating?: Proceedings of a Symposium, Part 3
National Academy Press, 1986 - Health & Fitness - 173 pages
For its annual symposium in 1984, the Food and Nutrition Board posed the key nutritional question: What is America eating? This resultant volume explains dietary habits, examines the impact of fast-food proliferation and the changing role of women as it affects dietary behavior, and analyzes the nutritional consequences of national dietary trends. Speakers focused on what major food consumption surveys and large-scale studies have demonstrated, including factors that shape eating patterns, eating trends such as snacking and food variety, nutrition policy and its effects on diet, and the overall nutritional status of the U.S. population.
