INTRODUCTION Childhood obesity remains a significant global health concern. Early intervention through maternal diet during pregnancy represents a possible mode of improving childhood adiposity. AIM To examine the impact of a low glycaemic index diet during pregnancy on offspring anthropometry at 5 years of age. METHODS This is a secondary analysis of 387 children from the ROLO pregnancy study 5 years' post-intervention. At the follow-up, BMI, circumferences and skinfold thickness were obtained....

BACKGROUND: Child eating behaviours can negatively contribute to the development of childhood obesity. This study investigated associations between breastfeeding habits, maternal eating behaviours and child eating behaviours, in 5-year-old children. METHODS: Secundigravida women were recruited to the ROLO dietary randomised controlled trial (Dublin, Ireland) and were followed up with their children to 5 years of age. Breastfeeding exposure and duration were obtained at postnatal and infant follo...

Summary Background Elevated stearoyl-CoA desaturase 1 (SCD-1) activity showed associations with obesity in cross-sectional studies. In non-pregnant populations, nutrition regulates SCD-1 transcription and activity. Objective To investigate the longitudinal associations of maternal and fetal SCD-1 activity markers with infant anthropometry up to 2 years of age, and to explore how selected dietary intakes modulate SCD-1 activity in pregnancy. Methods As a secondary analysis from the ROLO intervent...

The aim of the study The aim of the audit was to determine if patients referred with lymphadenopathy need to wait for a General Paediatric outpatient appointment or if instead they could be reassured with normal investigations prior to attending the clinic, with the aim of providing a guideline for community management in some cases. Method Lymphadenopathy is a common cause of presentation at GPs and a cause of concern for parents. We analysed a number of tertiary referrals to the General Paedia...

Background Fitness in early and late childhood has declined worldwide alongside the high levels of childhood obesity. Cardiovascular fitness is vital for good health and low levels have been linked with metabolic risk factors and adverse body composition in adults. However, research on fitness is limited in young children, particularly how this relates to body composition, potentially due to the lack of simple methods of estimating fitness in 5-year-old children. Methods 272 5-year-old children ...

Background Childhood obesity rates have reached epidemic proportions world-wide, identifying modifiable factors to address this has become vital. Adverse child behaviour, in terms of low physical activity and high sedentary time, has increased alongside rates of over-weight and obesity. However, research on these aspects of physical health is limited in young children. Methods 275 5-year-old children from the ROLO Kids study were included in this study. Parental-reported physical activity levels...
