National Nutrition Week – Why is Eating Healthy Important?

Initially observed by the American Dietetic Association, the importance of National Nutrition Week has reached a global scale. The aim is to advocate for healthy, nutritious cuisine over the usual junk food, giving to the body rather than harming it further. Celebrated on the first week of September, it serves as a note of just how prevalent unhealthy eating has become. Fast Foods, often full of fats and sugar are not only enticing to a wide audience but also available at the tap of a button. As fast food delivery becomes easier and faster, many people are faced with the challenge of choosing between fast food and healthy options.

What makes realizing the Importance of Healthy Eating a difficult choice? A possible explanation is proposed by Professor of Marketing Linda Hagen’s research. Via a series of experiments, the researchers identified that ‘Physical Involvement in Obtaining Food’ negatively correlated with how unhealthy it was. The more effort required in obtaining healthy food, the more likely it is that an unhealthy alternative is chosen. A behavior commonly referred to as ‘Rejecting Responsibility’ occurs when individuals distance themselves from their food choices.
