Multiple factors can lead to overweight and obesity but unhealthy diets remain one of the key contributors. Diets in turn are influenced by diverse factors. Using the example of Ethiopia, especially with regard to adolescents, we aimed to assess these factors and how they are addressed in Ethiopian policies.
The overall objective of this project is to understand the factors influencing dietary behaviours of women and adolescents in low- to middle-income countries, and specifically of adolescents in Ethiopia. Additionally, it aims to explore how these adolescents perceive their food environment using Photovoice method, a participatory action research and how policies address the different factors of the food environment.
