Inhoud
During this course eating behaviour will be discussed from various psychological perspectives. The emphasis will be on cognitive and motivational processes that influence eating behaviour, and on ways to change people’s eating habits effectively. Topics that will be addressed are the influence of advertising, people’s social and physical environment, the brain reward system, and diet cognitions in determining eating behaviour. One central question during this course is why it is so difficult for many people to eat healthily despite their strong intentions to do so. Apart from acquiring theoretical knowledge, you will be asked to think critically about new effective ways to change people’s eating behaviour, and to apply scientific insights to promote healthy eating behaviour.

This course connects to sustainable development goals (SDG) '3: Good Health and Well-being' and '12: Responsible Consumption'
