Improvement of Danish children and adolescents’ food and meal habits
Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V05190274
Healthy food and meal habits can help promote and maintain good health throughout life. Only few 4-18-year-olds follow official Danish dietary recommendations, leaving room for improvement, notably among 13-18-year-old adolescents and children and adolescents of parents with short-term education. Specific focus areas for all families with children may help limit intake of sugary foods and beverages on weekends. Promotion of healthy food and meal habits among children and adolescents call for a comprehensive and well-coordinated approach with participation of main stakeholders in the field.
