Sustainable Eating related to the Nutrition Transition in Latinx Population residing in Latin America and the United States
Mary Claire Atkinson
Several definitions of a sustainable diet have been formulated in order to understand the components of the diet and the effects sustainable eating and food production have on both human health and the environment. The concept of sustainable eating can be used in observing the diet of the Latinx population in Latin America and in the United States and how that contributes to the overall health of the population. Specifically, sustainable eating in the Latinx population can be looked at in the context of the nutrition transition that is rapidly developing in both Latin America and the United States. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to examine sustainable and unsustainable eating patterns of the Latinx population throughout the nutrition transition. Furthermore, it is to examine some of the barriers and facilitators to sustainable eating in the Latinx population in examining strategies that incentivize and promote sustainable eating practices.
