The project that I focus on,  is about early-life nutrition. The practical aim of the project is to develop a tool to aid and advice women in their diet during pregnancy and lactation. Furthermore, this tool will also aid parents in feeding their young child. Through this project we hope to assist in providing reliable up-to-date dietary advice that encourages women and young parents to encourage improvements in their dietary habits and the diet of their child. We aim to provide an inclusive tool that includes families of different cultures and socio-economic classes.
