By the end of HUNT343 students will be able to:
- Describe public health nutrition (health promotion) principles, frameworks, theories and models for creating socioecological systems (environments) that promote healthy food consumption
- Identify a socioeconomic (or ethnic) nutrition-related health inequality, describe how it occurs, and justify a structural intervention to tackle the root cause
- Use collaborative techniques to map socioecological influences on food choice and identify insightful socioecological ‘needs’
- Justify and plan a viable, public health nutrition (structural) intervention to address an identified socioecological ‘need’
