This course will draw from case studies to understand higher-level influences on the nutritional health of a population. Attention will be paid to ‘upstream’ factors such as Big-Food, supermarkets, food advertising, as well as government action and policy such as fortification, taxes, regulation and law. Students will identify, evaluate and reflect on the advantages and disadvantages of different strategies for improving the nutritional health of the population.
