In this report the influence of timing and composition of meals on the health of shift workers is investigated. This is done with the goal to generate hypotheses which can be verified in further investigations. The shiftwork subject group consisted of health care personnel in the UMCG hospital in Groningen, The Netherlands. In conclusion relationships between meal timing and composition and the five investigated parameters were smaller than expected. This is due to the small variance in food consumption behavior of the health care workers and to the small size of the subject group. Some differences were found in tests scores between the highest 25 and lowest 25% scoring group for MSF, health score, BMI, recovery after night shift and chronic fatigue. These differences can become focus points of future research in which these relationships can be further elucidated.
