The COST Action HyperChildNET is aimed at establishing a European sustainable and multidisciplinary network focused on acquiring a holistic understanding of the factors affecting high BP in children in order to propose and implement corrective and
preventive actions both globally and locally.
All members of the network and the research projects running locally will collaborate by creating working groups to coordinate research actions, exchange scientific and clinical knowledge, research findings and best practices. In order to promote the research objectives foreseen, HyperChildNET will organise conferences, seminars, short-term scientific missions, training schools and will produce reports, studies, guides, strategy documents and action plans to make progress in contributing to solve the challenge.

What is a healthy diet? Why and how do fruit and vegetables contribute to the prevention of chronic diseases? Which diet should be recommended during pre-conception period and pregnancy?

They have been elaborated with the office of the University College of General Medicine of Lyon 1 University, the European association of general practitioners (WONCA Europe) and the European Childhood Obesity Group (ECOG).
