Descrição e Análise Crítica do Regime de Fruta Escolar em Portugal - Carneiro, C.S.; Gregório, Maria João; Graça, Pedro; Patacho, Rosa; Lima, R. M.
A healthy diet is a determinant factor for health promotion and protection. Fruit and vegetables, as a part of a healthy diet, seem to play an important protective role in a large number of chronic diseases. However, several studies show that, in children, the fruit and vegetable intake is below the recommended levels. The main objective of this work is to describe and critically analyze the Portuguese strategy for the promotion of fruit and vegetables consumption at school environment, the School Fruit Scheme. This program is co-financed by European Commission for fruit and vegetables acquisition and supplying for school-aged children,...
Proposta metodológica para a avaliação da Insegurança Alimentar em Portugal - Gregório, Maria João; Graça, Pedro; Nogueira, P.J.; Gomes, S.; Santos, C.A.; Boavida, J.
In modern societies, social inequalities have being considered as one of the main current challenges, with largely impacts on populations#8217; health. Indeed, food insecurity as a situation that exist when there are difficult in the access to healthy foods due to economic constraints, seems to be a risk factor for non-communicable diseases. In that sense, the monitoring of populations#8217; Food Securitybecomes one priority strategy in the food and nutrition policies scope. This work aims to present a methodological proposal for the evaluation of Food Security situation in the Portuguese population. The multidimensional character of this concept implies several challenges when...

Background: Reducing health inequalities is a top priority of the public health agendas in Europe. The EPHE project aims to analyse the added value of a community-based interventional programme based on EPODE methodology, adapted for the reduction of socio-economic inequalities in childhood obesity. The interventions that will be implemented by this project focus on four energy balance-related behaviours (fruit and vegetable consumption, tap water intake, physical inactivity, sleep duration) and their determinants. This article presents the design of the effect evaluation of the EPHE project. Methods/Design: This is a prospective two-year follow-up evaluation study, which will collect data on the...
Identificação de locais críticos no escoamento superficial das áreas urbanas de Arouca e São João da Madeira: metodologia e casos de estudo. - Marafuz, Inês; Gomes, António
Urban flooding reflects the urban expansion on the territory and the consequent soil sealing, which promotes the rapid movement of runoff and its concentration in depressed areas. This work deals with the design and interpretation of the structure defined by the surface runoff in urban areas for the village of Arouca and for the city of São João da Madeira. It#8217;s analysed the contribution of the urban fabric for the runoff reunion in depressed areas and identified the areas most susceptible to the occurrence of inundations. The adopted methodology is a quick procedure that allows interpreting how urban morphology contributes...
