Jennifer McCann

Jennifer McCann is a PhD student and Teaching Scholar in the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia. She has a background in Medical Science and as well as a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Nutrition, which she obtained in her home country of Canada, and a Master’s degree in nutrition from Deakin University.

Jennifer has a research background in young children’s nutrition and food environments. Her passion for young child nutrition and policy intersect in her PhD project. Her current doctoral research project focuses on the relationship between food policy and regulation and the toddler food and milk environment in Australia. With the steady increase of (unhealthy and unnecessary) products specifically marketed for toddlers, there is an increased need for scrutiny to ensure these products align with Public Health principles as well as dietary and feeding recommendations. Choice-Based Conjoint Analyses will be conducted to reveal the product packaging and nutrition attributes which are influencing parental purchases (which will be from the current regulatory situation, and a stricter, hypothetical situation). Results will then assist to inform future policy and regulatory actions for young children.
