  3. 3. Nutrition and health in infancy and childhood an epidemiological approach to the assessment of dietary habits, their determinants and implications

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Lars Åke Persson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1984]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Breastfeeding; dietary habits; growth; dental caries; obesity; CHD risk factors; infancy; childhood; epidemiology;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis is to describe the distribution of feeding habits and dietary habits of Swedish children of different ages, to search for determinants of the observed distributions and to analyse some possible implications of those habits regarding health and growth. The present results emanate from a longitudinal study of feeding, growth and development of 312 infants and from a cross-sectional study on the dietary habits of 738 children aged 4,8 and 13 years.
