3 Year Follow-up
***Follow-up at 3 years*** A parental structured questionnaire was applied by phone, by trained interviewers. This questionnaire focused on socio-demographic characteristics, health of child, health service use, growth and food (including total breastfeeding duration). Additionally, behavioural and emotional problems were measured using the Child Behaviour Checklist for ages 1½-5 years (CBCL/1½-5). Also, parents completed a food diary detailing everything the child ate or drank for 3 days. Both instruments CBCL and food diary were sent out by post (and to be returned by post).
