explore the application of the Transtheoretical Model to better understand the health literacy of inner-city families and their purchase of fruits and vegetables at convenience stores.

The Theory of Reasoned Action/Planned Behavior is based on the principle that one’s “intention” to perform a behavior is the key, rather than as previously thought, that one’s attitude alone toward the behavior is the driving force. The Transtheoretical Model, which is classified as a theory, is based on the concept that behavior change is a process that occurs in specific stages, irrespective of the behavior.
In this Discussion you will explore the application of the Transtheoretical Model to better understand the health literacy of inner-city families and their purchase of fruits and vegetables at convenience stores.
To prepare:
Consider what resources are available to inner-city families and what access might they have to fresh fruits and vegetables. Then consider how the Transtheoretical Model might apply to these inner-city families and their access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
Explain why someone might use the Transtheoretical Model to better understand an inner-city family’s purchase of fruits and vegetables at a convenience store
Analyze how health literacy impacts the purchase of fruits and vegetables
Be sure to cite information using APA style.
