A qualitative exploration of drivers of eating habits in young Australian men

Capel, Eleanor & Gallegos, Danielle (2012) A qualitative exploration of drivers of eating habits in young Australian men. In International Congress of Dietetics, 5-8 September 2012, Sydney, NSW. (Unpublished)


Australian men’s health status is poor, with a lower life expectancy than women and higher chronic disease risk due in part to poorer dietary habits.

Previous studies and sociological theories have: - linked gender norms around food and masculine ideals to men’s eating patterns; and - aligned these forms of masculinity with certain occupations.

This study sought to explore the drivers of young, Australian men’s diets, the link to ideas of masculinity and occupation groups to assist in the development of strategies to support healthier eating habits in this population.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
