Healthy start

Which lifestyle interventions work best for young people with a low socio-economic status and other disadvantages? This question is central to the Healthy Start theme. The research will include looking at the added value of innovative technologies such as gamification and virtual reality.

Almost 17% of Dutch children grow up in poverty and social exclusion, according to the website of the national (population health) expertise centre, the Pharos Foundation. Children’s health is related to their parents’ socio-economic status, (labour) participation and well-being. With the knowledge and expertise available at TU Eindhoven, Wageningen University & Research, Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht, we intend to help narrow the low and high socio-economic status gap between young people.
