ANA Webinar – Growing Up in New Zealand study: Nutrition-related findings
Growing Up in New Zealand is a cohort study following more than 6,000 children born in the Auckland, Counties Manukau, and Waikato District Health Board areas in 2009/10. Participating children and their families generously give their time to the study, with face-to-face data collection waves taking place every two to three years.
The research is focused on what works to optimise child development and wellbeing, and has released interesting findings about the what young children in Aotearoa are eating and how policy makers and practitioners can support good nutrition in the early years.
In this webinar, Sarah and Clare will present selected key results from the first ten years of the study, covering the topics of maternal diet in pregnancy, infant feeding, family eating behaviours, food in education environments, and food insecurity.
