Young people and healthy eating : a systematic review of research on barriers and facilitators

This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 20 .Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.
This review aims to provide a summary of evidence to help develop, implement and evaluate interventions for promoting healthy eating amongst young people aged 11 to 16 years. The review focuses on young people from socially excluded groups at greatest risk for poor nutrition and on interventions targeting structural or environmental barriers to healthy eating (e.g. access to healthy foods) .
