Nutrition and Diet

Strong evidence clearly supports the benefits of eating a healthy diet. Unfortunately, a variety of barriers make healthy eating difficult for many. Nutrition research at Arizona State University focuses on strategies to improve access, availability, and utilization of healthy foods addressing a variety of contexts and concerns across the lifespan. Innovative, ongoing research spans issues from food security locally and nationally, to diet-related behavior change strategies, to functional foods and nutritional biochemistry. Nutrition faculty conduct their cutting-edge work amongst individuals, families, communities, and policy makers, using state-of-the-art methods and technologies.
