The Gateshead Millennium Study recruited mothers of 1029 newborn babies between June 1999 and May 2000. The study has generated a wealth of data since its inception, from feeding, weaning and growth, to strengths and difficulties, disordered eating, physical activity and food intake. Data have been collected on both the children and their mothers allowing us to look at trans-generational influences. Many of the characteristics we have measured are associated not only with health in childhood, but also in later life.
