Welcome to ‘Nutrition for Life’, the podcast that goes beyond your plate, brought to you by Herbalife.

In this six part podcast series, broadcaster Carole Walker meets guests from across Europe to explore some of the biggest topics in the world of nutrition and food. From nutrition itself, food sustainability, obesity to the rising cost of food, we’ve got it all for you in this series.

In Episode 6, we’re talking about food and gender. How and why does our gender affect the food we choose? And how does the food industry target us based on whether we’re male or female? We’ll also touch on the way our age influences our habits and our culinary choices. 


Oydis Youland, senior researcher at Nofima – the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture. Oydis has worked extensively in consumer and sensory science and has a particular interest in how age and gender influence food choice. 

Vhari Russell, founder of the Food Marketing Experts – a UK-based marketing agency dedicated to the food and drink industry. Vhari has more than 20 years’ experience in the food and drink industry.
