WHY DO WE CHOOSE THE FOOD WE EAT?

WORD BANK:
ADVERTISING ROUTINES $33 BILLION PROFIT EQUIVALENT FLAVOR CALORIE-DENSE

HUNGER APPETITE

              $33 BILLION               is how much the Food Industry in the United States spends on Advertising.

We spend the              equivalent              of about 3-4 years eating throughout our lives.


The physical biological drive to eat is controlled by internal body mechanisms. This is called          hunger         


           Appetite            is our psychological drive to eat and is affected by external food choice mechanisms.


Restaurant dining is often                 calorie-dense                 and large portions with poorer nutritional quality.

Habits and            routines            are tied to our food choices.


Texture, appearance and          Flavor          are the most important factors determining our food choices.

Advertising highly sweetened cereals, cookies, cakes and soft drinks in the United States brings the most           profit            to the industry.
