Good nutrition promotes health-related quality of life by averting malnutrition, preventing dietary-deficiency diseases, and promoting the optimal functioning of adults and proper development of children.
A dietary pattern is defined as the quantities, variety, or combination of different foods and beverages in a diet and the frequency with which they are habitually consumed. Healthy dietary habits play an important role in our states of mental and physical health and the prevention and treatment of non-communicable diseases, in both children and adolescents as well as the elderly. Analyzing dietary patterns can be a simple way to assess the nutritional status and risk of malnutrition in healthy people and people suffering from chronic diseases. Adopting a specific dietary pattern can be a factor that protects health and contributes to a better quality of life or be one of the reasons for becoming ill with lifestyle-related diseases, such as diabetes or obesity.
In this Special Issue of Nutrients, we invite contributions dealing with various aspects of nutrition and dietary patterns in relation to the healthy development of children, adolescents, and adults or quality of life, including—but not limited to—papers on nutrition knowledge and nutrition in diseases of civilization, the influence of diet on the development of excess body weight, and analyses of dietary patterns in different age groups compared to population recommendations. We welcome original research articles (clinical, translational, or basic research), as well as meta-analyses and reviews.
