(p.101) Chapter 4 Nutrition
Food Policy

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores how and why nutrition has the long policy pedigree already noted. It argues that nutrition has three distinct traditions and foci, each of which has different messages for policy. One stresses the bio-chemical basis of nutrients and their implications for health. Another centers on how social factors shape dietary intake. The third, referred to as ecological or environmental nutrition, explores how nutrition is a function of humanity's environmental infrastructure.
