Some examples are toast, cheese and tomato, fruit with yoghurt, capsicum and carrot sticks with mashed avocado, scrambled eggs with English muffins.

Metrics details. Food literacy refers to the capability to make healthy food choices in different contexts, settings and situations. An initial set of 50 items for the SPFL scale were generated based on expert insights and literature. The participants in the general sample had an average age of Of the initial 50 items, 29 items remained after PCA and reflected eight domains of food literacy. The 29 item SPFL scale is a validated, expert-based and theory-driven tool for measuring self-perceived food literacy with respect to healthy eating among adults. Higher levels of food literacy were associated with more self-control, less impulsiveness and healthier food consumption. Additional research is needed to validate the SPFL scale in different populations different age groups, socioeconomic groups, male populations and in different contexts. Unhealthy food habits, defined as a diet high in refined carbohydrates, sodium, saturated fat and calories, are associated with an increased risk of obesity and other non-communicable diseases NCDs and premature mortality [ 1, 2 ]. Food consumption is a complex behavior which is affected by multiple factors, ranging from individual and social to environmental determinants [ 3 ]. The current food environment promotes ready-to-eat, low-cost, highly processed foods which are energy dense and nutrient poor [ 4 ]. This makes navigating the food environment in a healthy way a challenge for many people.

Using games and activities is a great way to help children learn about healthy eating while having fun at the same time! The ideas below can be used to engage children in healthy eating experiences, teach them to recognise different foods and encourage them to experiment with new foods, tastes, flavours and textures. Place some vegetables real or plastic in a bag e. Ask children to feel inside the bag and guess which vegetables are there. As a variation, blindfold children and place a vegetable in their hands. Ask them to guess what the vegetable is by feeling, smelling and even tasting it. Each week taste and discuss healthy foods which start with the chosen letter of the week. Ask children to identify the odd word. Ask the children why the odd word does not belong with the rest of the group. Help children use toothpicks to make their vegetable person stand up and be three dimensional.
