  4. 4. + Dominant factors influencing eating habits?  A study by Richer et al. found that in adolescent boys a healthy diet (more intake of fruit, veg etc.) was related to higher socioeconomic status.  Also found that traditional German diets are still consumed by adolescent boys and girls, but are not as prevalent as ‘western’ diets. (Richter et al., 2012)  Perceived lack of control over food choice.  Accessibility and Cost of nutritious foods – particularly in rural areas.
  5. 5. + Terms and Items, Celebrations, Food preparation  Traditionally Germans ate 5 meals a day, however now, three meals a day is much more common.  It is traditional for shops and businesses to close at lunch time as this is the main meal of the day. Lunch is usually eaten with family.  Oktoberfest – Today this agricultural fair is the worlds largest festival, showcasing and celebrating the foods and beer that Germany has to offer.  Religious Holidays – As a predominantly Christian country, Easter and Christmas are the main religious holidays celebrated in Germany. On both occasions, traditional German meals are prepared, likely to include; carp, kale, bangers & roast goose at Christmas, and on Easter more common German foods including cheeses, breads, wurst and of course eggs!
