My main research interest is to study the relations between diet, nutrition and health. Special research interests have been in children and family nutrition, first relating to cardiovascular disease and later growth and possible development of overweight. Recently I have been working with questions concerning eating behavior and body composition part of the STEPS Study (Hyvän kasvun avaimet –tutkimus) as well as with diet, health and learning among children in the Nordic countries. One of the most important aspects during these years has been to measure dietary intake as accurate as possible and ensure that analyzing programs are kept up to date.
