Abstract

The role of behavior in nutrition is seen in the individual's food preferences and aversions and in the control of caloric intake. Both kinds of food-oriented behaviors are determined by a combination of biological, psychological, and cultural factors. These change throughout the life cycle as the nutritional requirements and the competence of the individual change from infancy to old age and as cultural patterns and individual experience vary. This article shows how research on the role of behavior in nutrition throughout the life cycle can be put on a rational scientific basis and it points to areas of research opportunity and need.
