Meal habits, attitudes and barriers towards healthy eating in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes

​Differences in meal habits, attitudes and barriers towards healthy eating in people with diabetes compared with the general Danish population. 

No previous studies have examined meal habits, attitudes, and barriers to healthy eating in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and compared them with the general population. Our study is based on data from 774 Danish adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes from a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2014-15 and 2,899 adults from the Danish National Survey of Dietary Habits and Physical Activity conducted in 2011-13.  

Aim

To examine and describe meal habits, attitudes and barriers to healthy eating in people with type 1  and type 2 diabetes compared with the general Danish population.
