Health on the Restaurant Menu: Foodservice Trends in the U.S.

29 Dec 2011 • by Natalie Aster

Amidst poverty, scarcity, and food insecurity-limited or uncertain access to sufficient food-families struggle to keep food on the table. At the same time, many adults and children are overweight or obese.

According to the report “Health on the Restaurant Menu: Foodservice Trends in the U.S.” by Packaged Facts, not only is the childhood obesity epidemic “a public health crisis deeply connected to poverty,” but Hispanic culture and practices may significantly influence the crisis.

The 2007 ethnographic study used participant observation, interviews, and life histories to probe the sociocultural roots of childhood obesity by exploring the food practices and everyday lives of Latino families in Bushwick, Brooklyn, a low-income neighborhood in New York City.
