The acceptability and feasibility of using Instagram to disseminate nutritional information to Young Australian Adults

We are conducting a research study to understand how we can use the social media platform Instagram to share nutrition information to young Australians aged 18-30 years old. We also want to determine what types of posts young adults find most engaging, visually appealing, motivating and relevant. The findings of this study will help us understand how social media can be used in health promotion. Taking part in this study is voluntary.


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Are aged between 18-30 years
  •  Reside in New South Wales, Australia
  • Use Instagram 
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding 
  • Are not currently studying or have previously completed a nutrition course
