Writing papers for the energy project

The last few days I spend in Ghent. Part of the team of the Energy project met there to write a series of scientific papers on overweight, obesity and energy balance behaviors in European schoolchildren. Papers were prepared on the validity of the questionnaires used for data collection in the project, on sedentary behaviors among the children and the relation with metabolic function, and on mediators and moderators of dietary, physical activity and sedentary behaviors. All these papers are prepared to further inform obesity prevention efforts in this important target group.
