Young adults and their eating habits

Le comportement alimentaire des jeunes adultes

Centre de Recherche de l'Institut Paul Bocuse symposium

Symposium du Centre de Recherche de l'Institut Paul Bocuse

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, May 15, 2012


Each year, the Institut Paul Bocuse Research Centre welcomes researchers and professionals to exchange over a theme from various angles: biological, psychological, social or economic approaches. For its 2012 edition, the conference concerns the eating behavior of young adults. Indeed, youth is a critical phase that allows the transition from adolescence to adulthood, a period where individuals’ culinary and eating behaviors are constructed. The question can be raised of how far young adults are willing to go on with their family eating habits and how far they wish to break with transmitted values and build new schemes.



Exchanges aspire to identify levers that can be operated to provide a healthy diet and pleasure to the younger generations, regarding both food offers and food services.
Interventions and exchanges include:
  • Nutrition and eating troubles in teenagers and young adults
  • Changes in eating habits during youth, before / after leaving home, before / after entry into married life,
  • Food consumption out of home and in institutional restaurants
  • Comparison of eating practices between various cultures…
Thus, this meeting aims to bring together national and international experts, including researchers from various research fields (psychologists, sociologists, epidemiologists), professional catering (catering and food industry) and health (eating disorders and obesity experts) to contribute to the understanding of the eating practices of this population.
