I work as a research fellow at the institute and have a background in clinical nutrition and food technology.
I am part of a research group where we are using simple digital dietary interventions to promote healthy eating habits among children at home and in daycare. We call this initiative "Nutrition Now." Previous research at our institute has shown that such simple interventions can promote healthy eating habits in children. With Nutrition Now, we aim to apply this research on a larger scale. My task is to assess the implementation of Nutrition Now in daycare facilities to make the program as effective as possible.
The overarching purpose of Nutrition Now is to promote healthy eating habits early in life for good health in a lifelong perspective.
