Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The journal Nutrients has released a call for a Special Issue on “Physical Activity, Dietary Patterns, and Associated Health Outcomes among Children and Youth”. As you are an expert in a related field, I am hopeful that you and/or some of your colleagues may be interested in submitting an article to be included in this issue. We are interested in receiving both physical activity and nutrition/dietary studies that have a special emphasis on related health outcomes, including obesity prevention, mental wellbeing and cognitive health, and cardiometabolic health. Additionally, we hope to include several articles that focus on youth health disparities in these areas. The deadline for the Special Issue is 5 January 2022. Please feel free to forward this call for papers to colleagues who may also be interested in submitting to this Special Issue.

Thanks in advance for your consideration!

Prof. Dr. Jennifer Sacheck
