What we do
To evaluate the cultural and social determinants of malnutrition in Europe. After decades of educational campaigns and medical interventions on dietary habits and physical activity, in EU we are facing an epidemics of obesity and malnutrition. Adopting an ethnographical approach, we follow the activity of a team of expert pediatricians and dieticians to study what barriers cause the abandon of dietary good practices even by people who apparently benefit from them in the first 6-12 months. The goal is to shape strategies to further the effectiveness of investments in public health and prevention at the scale of families.
