On Tuesday 7 April, The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel took part in a digital seminar on this year's PEP report, arranged by Generation Pep.

Generation Pep arranged a digital seminar on this year's PEP report. The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel participated via video link from Haga Palace.

The 2020 PEP report, one of the most comprehensive reviews of children's and young people's health in Sweden, was released on 31 March. The report shows that only 14 percent of the children and young people included in the study move as much as they should and eat enough of what they need for a healthy body.

The survey involved more than 9,000 children and young people aged 4-17 answering questions about how they exercise and move, what they eat and how factors relating to children are affected by living conditions. Generation Pep was responsible for the survey, and the study was carried out with the support of the Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation. The SOM Institute at the University of Gothenburg carried out the survey. A group of advisors, consisting of researchers and experts, worked on the report.

Generation Pep

The Crown Princess Couple initiated Generation Pep, which was launched by Prince Daniel in 2016 in Visby, together with Swedish businesses, foundations and voluntary organisations. Generation Pep's vision is that all children and young people in Sweden should have the opportunity and the desire to live an active and healthy life.
