Beskrivning av projektet
The aim of this consortium of Folkhälsan and the University of Helsinki is to study young children’s stress regulation and self-regulation, and the significance of these factors in the associations between family’s socioeconomic status and child’s health behaviours. We also examine the effects of a preschool intervention aiming to enhance preschoolers’ self-regulatory skills on children’s health behaviours, especially to screen time and the intake of sugar-rich foods and beverages. The intervention is developed especially to meet the needs of children from low SES families and it aims to diminish socioeconomic differences in children’s health behaviours.
