IDEFICS - Identification and prevention of dietary- and lifestyle-induced health effects in children and infants

Beschreibung

Das von der EU im 6. Forschungsrahmenprogramm (FP6) geförderte Integrated Project IDEFICS zu ernährungs- und lebensstilbedingten Erkrankungen bei Kindern startete im September 2006 und endete im Februar 2012. 23 renommierte Forschungsinstitute und klein- und mittelständische Unternehmen aus 11 verschiedenen EU-Mitgliedsstaaten nahmen an der IDEFICS Studie teil, die vom BIPS koordiniert wurde. IDEFICS Ziel war lebensstilbedingte Erkrankungen von 2-10-Jährigen europäischen Kindern zu bekämpfen.

Ein Fokus von IDEFICS lag in der Erforschung der Ätiologie des kindlichen Übergewichts und Adipositas und deren langfristigen Auswirkungen. Zudem ermöglichte die EU-weite Studie erstmalig den Einfluß von sensorischer Wahrnehmung und Vorlieben auf die genannten Erkrankungen zu untersuchen.

Über die reine Forschung hinaus hat IDEFICS Aktivitäten zur Gesundheitsförderung und Prävention in Kindergärten und Schulen angeboten. Diese Präventionsprogramme wurden im Rahmen der IDEFICS Studie entwickelt, durchgeführt und evaluiert.

Die Ergebnisse der Studie sollen langfristig in unterschiedliche Richtlinien zu gesunder Ernährung, Verhalten und Lebensstil von Kindern in Europa einfließen.
