Thank you for being part of the Gemini study for the past 11-12 years. Gemini is now an internationally recognised study. This wouldn’t have been possible without your participation. We are inviting you to take part in our next round of data collection...

Transition to adolescence

Childhood into early adolescence is an important transition during which children’s eating habits can change; as they gain independence they make more decisions of their own about what and how much to eat. Many children develop healthy eating habits and feel positively about their body shape, but some struggle. Researchers don’t know much about why this happens. The aim of the next phase of Gemini is to understand more clearly how adolescents develop healthy eating habits, positive body image and good self-esteem.
