LOPEZ-ESPINOZA, Antonio et al. Study and research of feeding behavior: Roots, development and challenges. Rev. Mex. de trastor. aliment [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.1, pp.107-118. ISSN 2007-1523.

The present work provides a review of the basis and development of the study and research on feeding behavior (FB). Initial contributions and those that gave identity to this field are highlighted. Among them, the behavior is approached as an essential mean to maintain the state of balance in the organisms, as well as the role of learning as a determinant of food preference, selection and consumption. Subsequently, are presented the arguments that establish FB as an element that integrate the knowledge related to feeding generated by other areas of science. Finally, are stated the main challenges for academics dedicated to the study and research of FB and the role of education on food and nutrition as an optimal solution for food problems.
