Understanding eating patterns

Temporal eating patterns refer to the timing and distribution of food intake or distribution of eating occasions across the day. Increasing research suggests that the timing of food intake, not just the total amount of nutrients or foods, may be important for health and well-being. There are a number of important research questions that could be examined in this project including understanding the role of snacking in eating patterns, examination of the energy density and quality of meals and snacks, the relationship between eating patterns and sleep, the relationship between temporal eating patterns and health.

This research will use existing national and international datasets to answer these research questions, and may also use data from the MEALS study, and a new ARC Discovery project led by Associate Professor McNaughton, depending on the specific research questions.
