Regular consumption of a well-balanced diet is an important factor for ensuring healthy nutrition, especially in children of primary school age. In particular, seafood products are key components of a healthy diet and are important culturally and ethically around the world (Affinita et al. 2013). The communication of a balanced and ethical diet and the achieved health benefits needs to be carefully balanced to take into account various family factors which influence eating habit formation in young children (Castano et al. 2015). The family atmosphere is the first and most crucial place where children acquire the examples and principles of own eating habits. Indeed, this paper explores the effects of family eating habits on sustainable seafood consumption habit creation in children.

Particular attention has been devoted to the social gradient in food habits, aiming to reduce dietary inequality. However, few internationally published studies have evaluated trends in teenagers’ food habits, or investigated how dietary inequalities...

Australian consumers hold very favorable attitudes toward seafood, with key drivers to consumption being taste, convenience, diet variety, and health benefits. Nevertheless, despite these positive attitudes, seafood consumption remains below many other countries. In this article, we investigate the influence of habit including regular childhood consumption, familiarity with seafood, and attitudes toward seafood on seafood consumption and consumption occasions. Habit and lack of familiarity with ...

In the current study, a distinction has been made between pre-purchase consumer decision-making, on the one hand, and purchase and post-purchase consumer decision-making, on the other. Purchase and post-purchase decisions are those that affect their actions directly. These include vehic...

Abstract This study used a mail survey (n = 1159 usable surveys) of Pacific northwest (US) residents to understand general seafood preferences (familiarity, price, freshness, health and environmental concerns), beliefs and attitudes specific to aquaculture versus wild products, and how those cognitive factors affect decisions to consume types of farmed seafood products. Respondents strongly agreed that seafood is healthy, and they preferred wild over farmed products. Many respondents were uncert...

Summary Regular seafood consumption plays a protective role against chronic conditions and obesity, which account for the majority of the burden of disease in Australia. Despite public health recommendations, Australians consume less than the recommended levels of omega-3s (n-3) to reduce the risk of chronic disease. The best source of long-chain n-3 is oil-rich fish. This paper reports on results from a community survey on attitudes and patterns of seafood consumption conducted in a coastal tow...
