More about this project

ComMando is a randomised controlled trial investigating the potential of a novel device, 'Mandolean', to teach overweight children to eat more slowly. The Mandolean aims to encourage improved control of portion size, and extra weight loss above that achieved with conventional nutritional and activity advice alone.

We are currently recruiting children aged 5-11 years old through GP surgeries across Bristol
