Improving America’s Diet and Health: From Recommendations to Action


Written and organized to be accessible to a wide range of readers, Improving America’s Diet and Health explores how Americans can be persuaded to adopt healthier eating habits.

Moving well beyond the “pamphlet and public service announcement” approach to dietary change, this volume investigates current eating patterns in this country, consumers’ beliefs and attitudes about food and nutrition, the theory and practice of promoting healthy behaviors, and needs for further research.

The core of the volume consists of strategies and actions targeted to sectors of society–government, the private sector, the health professions, the education community–that have special responsibilities for encouraging and enabling consumers to eat better. These recommendations form the basis for three principal strategies necessary to further the implementation of dietary recommendations in the United States.
