Monitoring Fit@School

This project aims to monitor the healthy lifestyle activities that take place at several primary and secondary schools in both municipalities as part of “Fit@School”.

Wageningen and Nijkerk are both JOGG (Jongeren Op Gezond Gewicht) municipalities, which means that they want to combat overweight among children and adolescents in their community.

The project aims to answer three research questions: 1) What is the reach and participation level of the Fit@School activities, and how do children, parents, and teachers value the activities?, 2) what are the effects of Fit@School activities on awareness and attitude towards healthy eating and physical activity?, and 3) what are facilitating and hindering factors regarding the implementation and maintenance of the Fit@School activities?
