    Generational and Situational Poverty: Influences on Nutritional Practices and Behaviors by Welsh, Flora del Carmen

    This research seeks to define and examine several key nutritional concepts, and discuss historical and environmental factors influencing nutritional habits and practices amongst people experiencing situational and generational poverty. Both of these concepts will be defined along with a discussion on the effects of bad nutrition on human biology. Finally, a closer look at the concepts of social capital and habitus, based on the work of Pierre Bourdieu (1977), will be examined and applied to nutritional deficiencies experienced by people living under situational and generational poverty.
