Public Health Nutrition
Public Health Nutrition is the promotion of good health through primary prevention of nutrition-related illness in the population.
About the group
Our research is centred on:
- Stability and change of dietary behaviours and factors influencing these from childhood through adolescence into adulthood.
- Theory and evidence-based development, implementation and evaluation of interventions and policies to promote healthy eating habits.
The research has a special emphasis on understanding and combating social inequalities in dietary behaviours and on strategies to establish healthy eating habits early in the life course through school based interventions.
