Abstract: This paper outlines the state of knowledge regarding the determinants of healthy eating among low-income Canadians, as well as gaps in that knowledge. It focuses on income and social class, the first of twelve determinants of health identified in Health Canada’s model of population health. Its orientation is sociological, drawing in particular on the work of French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, to understand both the economic and socio-cultural determinants of healthy eating for low-income Canadians.
Description: This scoping paper on the state of knowledge regarding the determinants of healthy eating for low-income Canadians was commissioned by the Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion, Health Canada. It is one of a series of papers regarding the determinants of healthy eating. For published, short versions of the series of papers, please see the special issue of the Canadian Journal of Public Health, volume 96, supplement 3, "Understanding the Forces that Influence Our Eating Habits: What We Know and Need to Know"
