Challenges

Our long-term goals are to develop and optimize accurate dietary assessment methods and biological marker for use in large nutritional epidemiological studies with a minimum of introduced error.

Moreover, to identify potential nutritional challenges in the food intake and meal pattern among different age groups in the Norwegian population which may call for a public health action, with special focus on the infant to the adolescent period.

A third goal is to add to the limited knowledge about how school and home environment influence weight development, dietary and physical activity behaviour of schoolchildren/adolescents in a longitudinal perspective.
