Abstract

It is hypothesised that the food environment influences eating behaviour and contributes to excessive intakes, which contribute to the aetiology of obesity. However, there has been little research on the characteristics of individual food environments and the research field is constrained by the lack of reliable tools for measuring individual food environments. This research aimed to develop methods and tools to characterise and quantify individual food environments and to measure the impact of the food environment on dietary intakes of adolescents.
