What Shapes Your Healthy Eating Habits?
Consciously or unconsciously, impressions, what you learned, habits and role models play an important role in your eating habits.
The diet of adults
Oftentimes, the diet of adults reflects what you learned in childhood. Acquired eating habits are often difficult to unlearn. They shape your eating habits. They can contribute to the development of obesity or weight loss. Various psychological aspects like eating out of boredom or uncontrolled eating also have an influence on the quantity and choice of food.
In addition, diet is related to educational attainment and social status. A lack of knowledge about a balanced diet can lead to behaviour that also leads to obesity. This is true not only for adults but for children as well.
