Introduction
The aim of my PhD is to explore determinants of early-life nutrition and its associations with growth and body composition during childhood. Most projects are embedded in the Generation R Study, which is an ongoing prospective population based cohort from fetal life onwards in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Article
Background: A balanced diet in childhood is important for growth and development. We aimed to examine associations of overall diet quality in both early and mid-childhood with trajectories of growth and body composition until age 10 years. Methods: We included 3991 children from the Generation R Study, a population-based, prospective cohort in R...
Article
Background & aims: Protein intake in infancy promotes growth, but excessive intake may lead to adiposity in children. However, whether this increased adiposity persists throughout childhood and is independent of diet in later life remains unclear. Therefore, we studied the associations of total protein intake and protein from different sources at...

Background: A high-protein diet in infancy increases the risk of obesity, but the effects of dietary protein intake in mid-childhood on body composition are unclear. Therefore, we studied associations of protein intake (total, animal and plant-sourced) at 8 years of age with anthropometric measures and body composition up to age 10 years. Methods...
Article
Background: High intake of sugar-containing beverages (SCBs) has been linked to increased risk of obesity. However, associations of SCB intake during pregnancy with child body composition have been unclear.Objectives: We explored whether SCB intake during pregnancy was associated with children's body mass index (BMI) and detailed measures of body c...
