Worcester Food and Active Living Policy Council
To learn more about the attitudes of high school students towards food, we conducted multiple focus groups and interviews with local high school students. To assess the impact of the foodscape on student food choices, we mapped food retail outlets in relation to schools and school bus stops. Student’s food choice in Worcester is complex and is influenced by advertisements, peer pressure, easy access to junk food, acculturation, and economic considerations.
