 Currently it is advised to shift the Western dietary pattern to a dietary pattern with less animal-based foods, particularly meat, and more plant-based foods, such as vegetables, fruits, legumes and nuts. Such a dietary pattern would be more sustainable, and meanwhile increase consumption of e.g. fibre and healthy foods, like vegetables. However such a dietary pattern would also decrease consumption of protein and essential amino acids. Protein and essential amino-acids are important for the growth and development of children. Therefore it is important to assess what the current intake is of essential amino acids in children. Furthermore analyses of the relationship between essential amino-acids intake and height, will give insight, which intakes of essential amino acids are required to reach optimum height.


You will be responsible for:  

  • A short  background literature review  
  • Analyze amino acids intake among children of the Dutch Food Consumption Survey amino
  • Analyze the association between amino acids intake and height in the Dutch Food Consumption Survey
  • Writing a scientific article or scientific report
