Abstract

Suggests that sociological and social anthropological studies of food‐related behaviour can provide information that is the “missing link”, essential if nutritional health promotion is to achieve its goals. Nutritional health promotion messages need to work within, or change existing tastes, and this requires an understanding of how social roles are expressed through food, and how cultural values and associations shape taste.
