Behaviour change

This section is for people who want to find out about the science of behaviour change in relation to diet and lifestyle. It will be helpful for those studying or working in the field of nutrition and health and also those who would like more detail in this area.

On the 26th June 2012 the Foundation held its 45th anniversary conference entitled Behaviour change in relation to healthier lifestyles. This featured expert speakers in areas of behavioural science, weight control, physical activity, eating behaviour and a number of case studies to show how behaviour can be changed for the better in practice.

This section features some of the key scientific outcomes from the day as well as interviews with some of the experts.
