SWITCHtoHEALTHY – Intervention study set to start in Spain next week
The SWITCHtoHEALTHY intervention study is set to start on November 13, 2023, involving 160 families based in Barcelona and Tarragona (Spain). The registered participants – recruited mainly through schools and parents’ associations – will be involved in the study session named “Pre-assessment of consumption patterns” where they will be instructed on the initial completion of consumption and food balance sheets that will help researchers estimate dietary habits, food waste and environmental impact. The three-month nutritional intervention will be carried out during the last months of 2024 where the new plant-based healthy snacks and the SWITCHtoHEALTHY digital tools (App) will be deployed. The family-based nutritional study will have an overall duration of 12 months.
