dc.description.abstract The purpose of this research is to examine the heterogeneity of food consumption pattern across different ethnic groups in Ontario. Specific objectives of this study are: (1) to examine the role of different ethnic groups on fruit and vegetable consumption, and (2) to examine the role of different ethnic groups on convenience food consumption. Negative binomial and Zero-inflated negative binomial models were used to model fruit and vegetable consumption, while bi-variate probit regression was used for convenience food consumption. The Canadian Consumer Health Survey 2012/2013 data was used for analysis. Results revealed that different ethnic groups have a significant different fruit and vegetable consumption and convenience food consumption pattern. The length of residence and immigrant residential status in Canada has significant impact on few categories of food. en_US
