In the AKORA project (AlaKOululaisten RAvinto), a short method is being developed to measure diet quality in primary school-aged (7 to 13 years old) children. In the study we investigated the dietary intake, physical activity, growth and adiposity of 270 children. The study was conducted in Turku in Southwest Finland and in Kuopio in Eastern Finland from the spring of 2017 to early 2018. We are currently analysing and reporting the results.​
