Abstract

Despite the increasing reliance on nutritional knowledge by health campaigns, research investigating its correlation with dietary behaviour continues to generate conflicting findings. The reason for this variation may not be sufficiently explainable by sociodemographic differences between study subjects. Instead, it has largely arisen due to limited understanding and poor application of the subject- nutritional knowledge with regards to its domains, forms and level.

Keywords:
Nutrition, nutritional knowledge, dietary behavior.
