Project description

A cohort of young children (n>1000, age +/- 3 years) will be followed every 2 years, regarding their food habits and influencing factors. Evolutions in food habits during early childhood will be investigated and the influence of the family (primary socialisation) on their food habits and preferences will be investigated.
