Brief description Internationally, Healthy Beginnings Trial (HBT) is the first randomised controlled trial to test the effectiveness of an early childhood obesity intervention in 0-2 year olds. It is a home-based early intervention designed to improve family and behavioural risk factors for childhood obesity. We seek funding for conducting the follow-up to ages 3.5 and 5 years, and a cost-effectiveness analysis. This will permit the appropriate assessment of this internationally novel trial, which has already attracted a significant investment.
