Eden, Barbara, An investigation into the food choice of older adolescents based on the Ajzen and Fishbein Theory of Reasoned Action, with outcomes being used as guidelines for nutritional education, Master of Science thesis, Department of Public Health and Nutrition, University of Wollongong, 1991. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/2669
This study aimed to explain the food choices of first year university students by applying the Ajzen and Fishbein Model based on the Theory of Reasoned Action. Woodward et al (1991) satisfactorily used the Model to explain the food choices of adolescents in junior high school in Tasmania. Shepherd and Stockley (1987) also used this Model to successfully explain the consumption of high fat foods based on a person's beliefs and attitudes to these foods.
