1 Food Meeting Our Needs Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Applied to Food and Eating Habits Mrs. KrebsPeriod 1-9
2 Abraham MaslowPsychologist who first proposed a hierarchical organization to human needs.All people are motivated to behave in certain ways by a series of innate needs.Theory is referred to as “Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs”
3 Understanding the Pyramid Needs are built in a pyramid shape to reflect the notion that some needs need to be met before others can be addressed.A solid foundation is necessary to reach all levels of human needs.
5 Physiological NeedsThe first needs that must be met are physical in nature.Examples include the need for food, water, clothing, shelter, and sleep.If these needs are not met, human life cannot be sustained.If these needs are met, then the next level of needs must be addressed.
6 SafetyOnce physical needs are met, a person must meet their need to feel safe.Safety needs include: a protected home, secure job and income source, and good health of self and family.If these needs are not met then a person will be overly anxious and stressed and unable to meet higher needs.If these needs are met, then the next level of needs must be addressed.
7 Love and BelongingOnce a person’s physical needs are met, and they feel safe in their environment then they need to feel they are loved and belong to groups of people.Friends, family, social groups, religious affiliation and other group membership.If this need is not met a person will suffer from depression and loneliness and will not be able to meet higher needs.If these needs are met, then the next level of needs must be addressed.
8 EsteemOnce a person’s physical needs are met, they feel safe in their environment, and they feel they are loved and belong to groups, then they need to feel personal value and self-worth.Feeling that you are known and appreciated in your world, that you are competent at your work, and recognized by others all lead to a feeling of self-esteem.If this need is not met, than an individual feels discouraged and inferior and cannot meet higher needs.If these needs are met, then the next level of needs must be addressed.
9 Self-ActualizationOnce a person’s physical needs are met, they feel safe in their environment, they feel they are loved and belong to groups, and they feel personal value and self-worth then they can begin to strive for self-actualization.Self-actualization is the idea that one has reached their fullest potential as a human. They think and act in moral and just ways. They act unselfishly and consider the good of others when making decisions.Maslow believed few people actually reach self-actualization, but that all people should strive to reach their fullest potential.
10 How Food Fulfills our Needs Physiological – Without food we cannot live.Safety – knowing that food is available, not worrying about when one will eat next, having clean and healthy foods.Belong – preparing food for family & friends, eating dinner with family, snacks at meetings or sport events, going out to eat with friends, having someone make a meal for you.Esteem – others tell you they enjoy your cooking, cooking or nutrition related profession, knowing that you serve your family good foods, having a good diet and liking the way your body looks.Self-Actualization – helping others to meet their basic need for food (working at a soup kitchen, writing food stamp legislation, working for the Red Cross disaster relief efforts), educating others about healthy eating, or providing healthy foods (organic farming, cooking program, personal chef).
11 Your Family’s Need for Food What is one specific way your family’s basic need for food is met?What ensures the safety of your family’s food?What social activities do you participate in that include food?How might food or food preparation make you feel good about yourself?In what way could food help you to reach your highest potential?
