Samenvatting

A worldwide health problem is the increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity. Overweight and obesity can cause death, but also lead to a higher risk of developing chronic diseases like hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus and certain types of cancer. In 2004, of the Swedish population, 29.6% men and women in the age of 25-44 years was overweight and 9.1% obese (2). Of Swedish children in the age of 4, 8/9 and 11/12 years old, 15-20% was overweight and 1-4% was obese based on an age-adjusted Body Mass Index (BMI) scale in 2003.
The Salut programme is an initiative of the County Council of Västerbotten to promote well-being and health among all children in the county of Västerbotten, and thereby also promote a healthier future adult population. The target of Salut is that “by 2020, the health and well-being of the population of Västerbotten will be the best in the world”, according to the vision of the County Council. They try to achieve this by supporting children and their parents during their entire childhood, starting already during the mother’s pregnancy. One of the domains of the programme is to improve good eating habits; this thesis focuses on this domain.
