How We Eat – Reviews of the evidence on food and eating behaviours related to diet and body size

This report presents the current evidence available about the effect of several eating behaviours (‘how’ we eat) on diet and body size. The six chapters contain summaries of high quality research about the nutrition-related behaviours related to: breastfeeding, parental feeding practices and parenting style, adult role modelling, responsive eating, mealtimes and food literacy. Each chapter also contains a summary of related New Zealand research. Evidence statements have been produced based on the research summaries, in order to inform policy and programmes about the promotion of healthy eating behaviour.
