Scenarios illustrating change in eating behaviour pattern due to increase in social counter parameters, healthy eating behaviour. In Figure (a), P=N=0.01. Eating behaviour of students is uniformly distributed among all categories (i.e., 25% of 1600=400). But when we increase the healthy eating influence by 10%, i.e., βBH=βPH=0.011 in Equation 2, then we observe positive transition, Figure (b). Same trend is further observed if we assume the values of βBH=βPH=0.012, Figure (c).
