Abstract

The concept of dietary culture is undefined in the nursing literature. This is problematic due to the significant influence of culture on group eating patterns, which impact cardiovascular health. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, globally. The purpose of this concept analysis was to define the concept of dietary culture to increase the understanding of the relationship between diet, culture, and cardiovascular health. Walker and Avant's method was employed. This analysis of dietary culture provides insight into the internal structure of the concept for future theory development and promotes the application of the concept to nursing research and practice.
