The Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR) is studying the factors that influence dietary and activity related behaviours, developing and evaluating public health interventions, and helping shape public health practice and policy.

CEDAR is one of five Centres of Excellence in Public Health Research funded through the UK Clinical Research Collaboration, and draws on the expertise of a wide range of scientific disciplines. It is a partnership between the University of Cambridge, University of East Anglia and Medical Research Council units of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Human Nutrition Research. They are driven by the overall goal of supporting effective interventions to change diet and physical activity behaviours at the population level.
