Abstract: Whilst Singapore is frequently deemed the food paradise, it is also known to be one of the Asian countries with a high rate of diet-related diseases such as obesity and diabetes. These statistics prompted us to look at past and current health-related campaigns as well as Singaporeans' dietary habits and we found out that while Health Promotion Board (HPB) has been rolling out initiatives, policies and programmes, there are still factors faced by Singaporeans which stops them from eating healthily. In our midst of establishing the focus of our project, we began to notice a divide across Singaporeans in terms of their food choices. We also found out that income level is not the only factor which sets apart those who eat well and those who don't; this stark division amongst Singaporeans are signalled to us in terms of affordability, age group, socio-economic status, awareness and health.
