Virtual Issue: College Students and Nutrition

Edited by Sharon A. DeVaney

This virtual issue consists of six articles on college students and nutrition that have been published recently in the Family & Consumer Sciences Research Journal. The authors of the studies were interested in: the health belief model, diet quality, Body Mass Image, body image, attitudes, food safety, and cardio vascular disease. A review of these articles could inspire educators and researchers to extend existing research and/or help college students improve diet quality.
