Abstract

We worked with Dr. Tryfon Adamidis in Thessaloniki, Greece to understand Perrotis College students’ food culture and perceptions of the Mediterranean diet. We utilized a mixed method approach, including interviews, food diaries, free listing activities, and catalog studies, to collect data regarding students’ food choices, perceptions, and social eating practices. We analyzed this data in order to develop promotional strategies that encouraged Perrotis College students’ adherence to the Mediterranean diet.
