Good nutrition from infancy and during childhood sets the foundation and trajectory for lifelong health and wellness. Achieving the right balance of foods, together with positive caregivers’ feeding practices, can help children reach their full growth and developmental potential.

Lifestyle factors such as diet, physical activity, sleep and sedentary behaviour are inter-related and may work in additive or synergistic ways to influence health and prevent obesity.

This presentation will share insights on “what” and “how” our cohort children are eating and discuss the short and longer-term implications.
