Ecology of Food and Nutrition (EFN) promotes scholarly discussion and engagement on the holistic and cross-cultural dimensions of food and nutrition. Articles published in this journal focus on foods and food systems in terms of their utilization to satisfy human nutritional needs and improve health and well-being. The journal also publishes articles that examine how ecological, social, and cultural factors influence food availability, choices, and consumption, food cultures, and nutrition. Only a handful of journals publish articles that explicitly address the intersections of food and nutrition, biology and culture, and policy and practice from a holistic and global perspective. It is this kind of scholarship that EFN seeks to promote. The current issue of EFN includes eight articles based on studies conducted in Brazil, Côte d’Ivoire, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Kenya, the Mediterranean Islands, the Republic of Palau, and the United States. These articles focus on a range of topics, including household food insecurity, prenatal maternal health, child nutrition, changing food consumption patterns, and determinants of dietary awareness and food behavior.
