There are currently many strategies aimed at improving the eating habits of schoolchildren.
Mindful eating is a new strategy that consists of eating with control over the situation, with awareness and responding to the body’s physiological signals. Mindful eating-based interventions with adults have been proven to be effective to change eating habits and to help keep body weight under control. These types of interventions could be useful for children when promoting the choice of healthier foods.
This project seeks to assess the effectiveness of the Mindful eating strategy among schoolchildren (aged 8 to 11) in relation to the amount of food they ingest and their choice of food.
