Translating dietary patterns research into health messages for consumers

Nutritional epidemiology has played a significant role in highlighting the relationships between dietary patterns and health and increasingly this evidence is being used to inform food-based dietary guidelines worldwide. Nutrition science has traditionally taken a reductionist approach and has focused solely on nutrient intake. Food-based approaches such as dietary patterns, diet quality and eating patterns recognise that foods are consumed in complex combinations.

This work will focus on how consumers and health practitioners understand the concepts of dietary patterns and how dietary patterns research can be translated into dietary guidelines and will use a combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods.
