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 relate to food, 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. This issue of EFN includes eight articles representing studies conducted in Ethiopia, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States of America. Collectively, the articles included in this issue explore the impact of household food insecurity, parental attitudes, and nutritional awareness on the health of children and adults, strategies to improve the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the impact of household socioeconomic status and menstrual hygiene on anemia, and the relationship between healthy food consumption and happiness.
