Development of a Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme for preschool children in nursery settings, and their families at home (The Student Perspective)

Student: Catherine Sharp
Company: Food Dudes Health Ltd (SR)
Academic Supervisor: Dr Pauline Horne & Dr Mihela Erjavec

As part of my postgraduate skills development award I have been able to attend and give an oral presentation in a symposium with both my supervisors, Prof. Pauline Horne and Dr. Mihela Erjavec at the British Psychological Societies 3-day Cognitive and Development conference at Reading University. This was a great experience and excellent opportunity to disseminate my research.

I was also fortunate enough to get a place on the first KESS transnational programme in Sweden, which was a fantastic experience and enabled me to meet fellow students from different countries who were also doing projects working with company partners. The opportunities that I have received have been wide ranging; I have been able to choose what is best suited for my needs as a researcher and an individual.
