Abstract:
The influence of diet on health is widely recognised and documented. Diet is a product of choices made by consumers and as such is influenced by a variety of factors. By understanding these influences it will be possible to design policies that are cost effective in delivering improvements in diets that are of public interest. This contributes to the gap in knowledge about the pattern of food purchasing behaviour among households in the United Kingdom and its links with the increasing prevalence of diet-related diseases (e.g. obesity).
