How does BASELINE work?
BASELINE stands for Babies After SCOPE: Evaluating the Longitudinal Impact using Neurological and Nutritional Impact.
BASELINE is providing detailed information on maternal health, foetal growth, childhood nutrition, growth and development in the first 5 years of life. It includes a number of nutrition-led strands, focused around biomarkers of diet and nutritional status and growth during pregnancy and early infancy as a predictor of early health outcomes
The BASELINE study has used several channels of communication to inform the public about its research. A Facebook page for the study has consistently updated the public about how follow-ups are going, published research and media attention the study has received.
Baseline is now conducting assessments as the children turn five years of age.
