Jennie’s main research interest focuses on a new area of research relating to food security, exploring dietary choices combining need for environmental sustainability within the diet with dietary recommendations for health. With the recognition that dietary choices can have a significant impact on the environment, it is important to understanding what sustainable diets means in terms of the food choices we should be making for health, climate change, social and ethical reasons. The aim of this research programme is to bring together these different elements of sustainability to give a greater understanding of the synergies and conflicts in terms of dietary intake and explore some of the attitudes and barriers to dietary change of consumers. Some of her previous research focused on methodology for the evaluation of community-based nutrition related policies and intervention, including the development of an evaluation framework for nutrition related policies and interventions.
