Knowledge in nutrition of parents of Bremen preschoolers - Module 1

Description

Beschreibung Early childhood experiences shape later behavioural patterns, also with regard to nutritional behaviour. The development of a healthy eating behaviour should therefore take place early in life and can be protective throughout the entire lifespan. Amongst others, parents can have a huge influence on this development. However, also day-care centres can also provide a suitable framework for health promotion interventions, as the majority of German children attend a day-care centre and spend a lof of time there.
Study objectives The objectives of the study are findings on the following questions:
  • How important is the topic of healthy eating in Bremen's day-care centres?
  • What measures to improve children's nutritional behaviour are already being implemented in Bremen day-care centres?
  • .
  • What existing measures are particularly good at involving parents?
  • What measures to improve children's nutritional behaviour are already being implemented in Bremen day-care centres?

In the first module of the EWISS project, ten qualitative interviews were conducted with day-care centre staff. The interviews were recorded, transcribed and the results summarised for the Health Report 2019 of the hkk health insurance company.
