Food Choices, Motivation, and Well-Being

Danielle Kruchowy

Throughout history, in many cultures, food has been thought of as a type of medicine. However, due to the addition of fast-food restaurants, chemical additives and preservatives, and artificial flavors within the last 100 years or so, many foods are causing us more harm than good. Recent research in this area has focused on finding ways we can use food to supplement our health and ways we can use it to prevent, treat, and even cure many different ailments.

The goal of my project was to create a research study focused on the food choices, motivational factors to eat healthy, and overall well-being of young adults, aged 18 to 30. This age range is focused on because the different transitions and life changes that individuals go through during this time may influence many factors related to eating habits. The results from the survey are displayed visually, and explanations and information is provided to analyze these findings and share information from research on similar topics.
