Journal Club 10: Food Choice Drivers in the Context of the Nutrition Transition in Delhi, India

Recorded 4/29/2019

About the Webinar

With increasing income and urbanization, dietary intake in India has shifted toward being higher in energy-dense, refined foods and lower in fiber in a process called the nutrition transition. This nutrition transition has subsequently led to a rising burden of NCDs such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. To develop interventions targeting key risk factors for diet-related NCDs in India, a greater understanding of underlying drivers of dietary behaviors is required. Decisions relating to diet are complex and vary across cultural, contextual, and personal factors. Given that women are the primary household cooks, and that women are more likely to be overweight or obese compared to men, the objective of this study was to determine the factors influencing food choice among young adult women living in Delhi.
