Professor Terence Wilkin will discuss the findings of the EarlyBird Diabetes Study which has generated new and sometimes counter-intuitive findings with significant implications for public health policy. These include evidence that both child and parental diet in the very early years of a child’s life may be much more important in causing child obesity than a lack of physical activity among children.
