Abstract

FERREIRA, Vanessa A.  and  MAGALHAES, Rosana. Nutrition and health promotion: recent perspectives. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.7, pp. 1674-1681. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2007000700019.

In recent years, health promotion has been introduced as a promising strategy for the public health field. The current study is intended to link nutrition into the recent debate on health promotion, analyzing the role of nutritionists in this process. Given the complexity of the Brazilian nutritional situation due to the nutritional transition currently under way in the country, the health promotion proposal points to both new perspectives and challenges for eating and nutrition. New demands in academic training and the nutritional care model tend to foster a search for partnerships, innovation in eating practices, and nutritional education aimed at the achievement of nutritional citizenship.

Keywords : Health Promotion; Food and Nutrition Education; Nutritional Transition; Nutrition.
