EDDY Project


Effect of Sports and Diet Trainings to Prevent Obesity to Influence Young Children's Lifestyle

It has been investigated how a combined nutrition and exercise intervention affects health, physical performance and nutritional habits of 10-12 year olds. Physical activity was measured with help of a sports engine test battery and the use of accelerometers. The aim was to improve knowledge about the importance of physical (in)activity and on the other hand to develop individual possibilities and goals.
