  Choose Your Foods

Numerous factors are involved when making food choices on a daily basis. Given the variety of food choices that we have available to us, why do we choose the foods that we choose? After studying chapter 1 in your course text and watching the documentary ‘The Weight of the Nation:  Part 2: Choices (Links to an external site.)’, please address the following elements:

  • Examine the cultural and social connections attached to food. Provide one examples of a personal and/or environmental factor driving your food choices based on your culture or upbringing.
  • Explain at least three physical, psychological, social, and /or philosophical factors that lead to our food choices, and discuss how these factors are relevant to your own life.

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
