About this Unit
This unit explores current food and nutrition issues. It introduces students to the factors that influence public health nutrition and explores (a) the contribution food systems and food security makes to consumer wellbeing; (b) the changing global marketplace and the impact of globalisation on food security and ecological sustainability; and (c) the complex inter-connections between government policy, globalisation, consumerism and human health. Students will assess nutritional status from available data and explore the role of community food systems. Students will also be introduced to social research methods and plan a social research study to address a nutrition related issue.
