Lucy Cooke has research interests in the development and modification of children’s food preferences; the impact of the family food environment on children’s eating habits; and the design of effective dietary interventions. Current research includes the POPPETS Study. The first part of this study is a large-scale community survey to assess the family environment correlates of healthy dietary choices in preschool children (including parental nutrition knowledge, feeding practices, social norms, availability of foods, meal patterns and snacking rules). The next stage will include the development of interventions to modify aspects of the home food environment and assess their impact on food choices. Ultimately these will be combined to create an intervention that health professionals can be trained to deliver.

This talk is part of the MRC Epidemiology and CEDAR Seminars series.
