Project Details


The project consists of 6 work packages exploring different aspects of CYCF from different disciplines.

WP 1: Cohort study on diet, growth and other health parameters
WP 2: Methodology for dietary assessment in children and a national survey
WP 3: Early growth, CYCF, and obesity in the Danish National Birth Cohort
WP 4: Iron, growth and infectious diseases
WP 5: Early predictors of human food preferences
WP 6: Parental thoughts about complementary feeding

Department of Nutrition, National Food Institute, DTU is responsible for WP2 which aims at validating the dietary assessment method of 7 day pre-coded food record against 7 day weighed food records and energy expenditure estimated by the double labelled water method.
