Due to the uncertainties of travelling during the pandemic, we have decided to postpone this conference to 21-22th of June.
The symposium will present the final results of the Edulia Horizon 2020 project (www.edulia.eu), aimed at responding to the urgent need of the EU society to find new ways to tackle the escalating issue of obesity, through promoting healthier eating from childhood.
The symposium will also be an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences between industry, policy makers and different research groups. The program is open to flash oral presentations on the topic of children healthy eating from different perspectives, including sensory science, nutrition and social sciences.

Early childhood professionals, pediatricians, policy makers, food industries, nutritionists, researchers, as well as representatives of parent associations are welcome.
