Influences of Food Choices
By Will Moore
Foods needed for...1.Survival- Foods with lots of nutrients and proteins are needed for survival.
2.Hunger- A big double cheeseburger with pickles and bacon.
3.Health Status- Foods that are organic and not very fatty, that have low sugar and sodium levels.
4.Energy Level- Foods that have lots of sugar and caffeine
1.Moods- For a bad mood people usually eat chocolate or ice cream and for a good mood any food can do.
2.Emotions- Pretty much the same as before people will eat sweets when sad and any foods when happy.
3.Feelings- When I am feeling bad I usually avoid eating foods that I don't consider my favorites, and for feeling good I eat my favorite foods.
4.Body Image- For a good body image I eat healthy and avoid sweets and fattening foods while drink water mostly, for a bad body image I would eat all the sweets I wanted and load up on soft drinks.
Personal Food Preferences
2.Smell- I won't be able to eat anything if it smells like crap.
3.Color- If the food looks like it is moldy or like it shouldn't be the color it is I won't eat it.
4.Associations With Food-
5.Favorite Foods- My favorite food is pizza. Always has been, always will be!
2.Seasons- The only food I like to get out of season is Strawberries.
3.Distribution- I distribute my food to all my family members.
2.Lunches- For lunch my family will usually either eat sandwiches at home or go out to eat.
3.Movies- When we go to the movies my family gets two large popcorns and a drink for all of us, plus candy that we smuggle in from a gas station.
4.Other Events- For other events we usually just act casual and eat like its lunch.
Society & Culture
2.Religious Beliefs- My religion doesn't really forbid the eating of any kind of food.
3.Family Traditions- On the first and last days of school we will wake up early and have pancakes with bacon and chocolate chips in them.
4.Holidays- On Christmas, Easter, Thanksgivings, and 4th of July we go over to my grandparents (mom's parents) house and cook out.
