Description

The goal of this research is to discover whether there is a relationship between diet pattern (vegetarian, non-vegetarian, vegan, etc.) and fruit and vegetable consumption. This research project has several hypotheses: There is a relationship between diet pattern and fruit and vegetable consumption; there is a relationship between one’s reason for vegetarianism and the level of fruit and vegetable consumption; and there is a difference between fruit and vegetable consumption among different schools and departments in the university. This will be accomplished using data collected from lifestyle and food frequency questionnaires that have been distributed to undergraduate students. Comparative statistics will be used to assess the differences in fruit and vegetable intake among participants between the six groups. Correlation analyses will be used to assess the relationship between fruit and vegetable consumption and diet pattern.
