Eating smarter with your child

Project summary

Scientific research shows that unhealthy dietary and lifestyle habits from both mother and father contribute to obesity and poorer eating habits in a child. These unhealthy habits also contribute to poor growth and development of the child. We also know that poor growth in the child’s first year of life has consequences for health later in life.
Eating smarter with your child is a coaching program that supports breastfeeding and / or bottle-feeding and is aimed at improving eating and lifestyle habits according to known behavioral science models. Screening via the website, accessible via mobile phone or computer, makes you aware of your nutritional and lifestyle habits, which you transfer to your partner and child. At the same time you receive background information, tips and advice, and you will be encouraged by personal coaching via your mobile phone to change unhealthy habits and to maintain healthy habits.
