Brief description Obesity affects more than 43 million children 0-5 years world-wide, and 21% of Australian children 2-3 years of age. The intra-uterine environment plays a key role in the development of later health and disease, representing a critical period in the subsequent programming of obesity. We will evaluate health outcomes (including growth/adiposity) for infants at 3 years, whose mother’s participated in a randomised trial evaluating an antenatal dietary intervention to limit gestational weight gain.
