Nofima organises a webinar on children and healthy eating, 4th February 2021. You will get a chance to catch up with the latest research within the area of children and healthy eating. Learn from the latest studies regarding impact of different factors, how to involve young people in innovation and how to communicate successfully.
Edulia is a H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN project, coordinated by Nofima, that responds to the urgent need to find new ways to tackle the escalating issue of obesity in children, through promoting healthier eating, within the context of food choice.
Edulia invites relevant stakeholders (researchers, teachers, policy makers, food industry) in the area of children and adolescent heathy eating to a multidisciplinary knowledge sharing free webinar.
We have the pleasure to count with presenters from our project and other projects working on heathy eating, children and young people from Norway and Denmark.
