The primary purpose of this study is to validate a semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) against a reference method (2-day weighed food records) in a sample of young children aged 15-36 months.
In addition to dietary data, the investigators also collected information on parental demographics, toddler health with regards to allergies and intolerance, parental feeding practices, parent and child weight and height and lastly, saliva samples to study inflammatory markers.
Therefore, in addition to the validation of the FFQ- the data will also be used to study associations between dietary patterns, food and nutrient intake and (i) parental feeding practices and (ii) inflammatory biomarkers from saliva

- Validated Food Frequency Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Ninety-one parents completed the sqFFQ and a 2-day weighed food record as the reference method. Intake of energy and nutrients (energy, carbohydrates, fat, protein, fibre, sugars, calcium and iron) were determined for each method and compared using Pearson correlations.
- Salivary Inflammatory Biomarkers [ Time Frame: 1 year ]C-reactive protein, salivary IgA, alpha amylase
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
