Summary

Childhood socioeconomic status (SES) is related to poor physical health, obesity, elevated cardiovascular risk factors and iron deficiency anemia. We plan to offer a comprehensive framework allowing the "Nutrition Enrichment and Healthy Living Model" (NEHLM) among a low SES Kindergarten children. The model offered is designed to take into account the current economic status of the child's family. We shall conduct a randomized controlled trial to assess the efficacy of the intervention.

Our main objective:

To compare the influence of the intervention on changes in food consumption, physical activity and ,and caries rates in the children in kindergartens where it is applied versus the control kindergartens.
