Abstract Obesity affects nearly 2 million preschool age children in the United States and is not abating. However, research on interventions for already obese preschoolers is limited. To address this significant gap in the literature, we developed an intervention targeting obesity reduction in 2 to 5 year olds, Learning about Activity and Understanding Nutrition for Child Health (LAUNCH). This paper describes the rationale, design, participant enrollment, and implementation of a 3-arm randomized...

Objective To determine if a low glycaemic index diet in pregnancy could reduce the incidence of macrosomia in an at risk group. Design Randomised controlled trial. Setting Maternity hospital in Dublin, Ireland. Participants 800 women without diabetes, all in their second pregnancy between January 2007 to January 2011, having previously delivered an infant weighing greater than 4 kg. Intervention Women were randomised to receive no dietary intervention or start on a low glycaemic index diet from ...

BACKGROUND Pregnancy is characterized by increased bone turnover and reversible loss of bone mineral density (BMD) to meet fetal calcium demands. The long-term effect of bone turnover and maternal diet in pregnancy on maternal bone is not well established. OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine if an association exists between [1] bone resorption, [2] dietary calcium, and [3] serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D in pregnancy with maternal BMD 5-year postpartum. DESIGN This is a prospective, longitudinal study of ...

Background. The growth of the fetus is a complex process influenced by multiple factors. Studies have highlighted the important role of biochemical growth markers such as leptin and adiponectin on fetal growth. Objective. To compare fetal growth trajectories with biochemical growth markers from maternal blood samples at 28 weeks’ gestation, cord blood samples at birth, and in child blood samples at 5 years of age from mother-infant pairs who were part of the longitudinal ROLO study. Methods. 781...

AbstractBackground: The growth of the fetus is a complex process, influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Longitudinal patterns of fetal growth are required to fully understand this process, however to date, a paucity of data exists in this area.Objective: To identify fetal growth trajectories in-utero and to assess their association with maternal and child characteristics up to 5 years postnatal.Methods: Data from 781 mother–child pairs from the ROLO longitudinal birth cohort study wer...

Background: The ROLO Study (Randomised cOntrol trial of a Low glycaemic index diet in pregnancy to prevent macrosomia) was a randomised control trial conducted between 2007 and 2011 to examine if a low glycaemic index (GI) diet could reduce the incidence of macrosomia. The ROLO Family Advisory Committee is a self-selected group of parents who are involved in the longitudinal follow-up of the ROLO Study. The committee was established in 2017 and the goal is to achieve a partnership between ROLO f...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a dietary intervention in pregnancy had a lasting effect on maternal outcomes of diet, HbA1c and weight retention 5 years post-intervention; and to establish whether modifiable maternal behaviours were associated with these outcomes. DESIGN: Randomised control trial of low glycaemic index (GI) diet in pregnancy with longitudinal follow up to 5 years post-intervention. SETTING: Dublin, Ireland (2007-2016). POPULATION: In all, 403 women of 759 (53.1%) were followed ...
