HA RESEARCH MEET (TU/E INTERNAL)
Foundation BalanceBuddy has a new approach on making a structural change in the lifestyles of unhealthy children. The foundation trains students with a background in emotion, physical activity and/or nutrition into lifestyle-buddies. These buddies are matched to families in need. The buddies mainly focus on the children within these families, by for example keeping track of their food-intake. Foundation BalanceBuddy measures several social variables (e.g. self-efficacy, locus of control, motivation) to see what effects in behavior our buddies might bring about on the long-term. All these variables have (in)direct relations with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and are therefore really relevant to measure and discuss.
