There is a lot of evidence showing that what we eat affects our health. It’s less well known that the long-term influence of our diet starts in infancy.

Professor Wendy Oddy is a nutritional epidemiologist and investigates the impact of diet and nutrition, particularly during the first few years of a child’s life, on various diseases in the population.

‘If you put poor quality fuel in your car, it won’t go very well,’ she says. ‘This is just common sense. But what is striking is how nutrition in early infancy affects a person’s health throughout the life-course.’

Professor Oddy draws upon data from the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort Study, also known as the Raine Study. This study was established between 1989 and 1991 to determine how events during pregnancy and childhood influence health in later life. It involved nearly 3,000 pregnant women with regular follow-ups to track the health of the infants through childhood and into adulthood.

Using Raine Study dietary data, Professor Oddy seeks to better understand the relationship between nutrition during the first few years of life and the development of chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and mental health disorders including depression. The longitudinal dietary data collected in the Raine Study over many years makes it an ideal cohort in which to study the long-term impact of these factors.

Professor Oddy’s research has confirmed that babies who are fed exclusively on breast milk for at least six months, in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organization, do better and these benefits can persist into adolescence and adulthood. ‘Breast milk is an amazingly complex food for the developing infant. As well as providing vital nutrients, it contains genetic material, growth promoting factors, and immunological factors that pass from the mother to the baby. Formula just can’t replicate the quality of breast milk.’

Other findings highlight the importance of a nutritious diet – rich in fruit, vegetables, fish, whole grains, and legumes – throughout the life-course. Research by Professor Oddy has demonstrated that a high intake of sweetened drinks is linked to risk factors for cardio-metabolic diseases in adolescents. Her work has also shown links between diets that are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and the risk of mental illness and depression.

‘Unfortunately, the modern Western diet includes a lot of soft drinks, takeaway food, highly refined foods and foods rich in sugar.’

Together with the findings of research from around the world and around Australia, Professor Oddy’s work contributes to the Australian Dietary Guidelines. These guidelines, in turn, are used by health professionals, policy makers, educators, and food manufacturers to help Australians eat more healthy diets.

Professor Oddy is part of the Early Life Nutrition Coalition, which promotes the importance of nutrition before and during pregnancy and in the first few years of an infant’s life as a long-term preventative health measure. The Coalition publishes The First 1,000 Days, a publication given to expectant mothers.

Professor Oddy is interested in further work on the nutrition of mothers both before and during pregnancy, as well as the nutrition of fathers. It has been shown that the nutrition of both parents is important not only for reproductive health but also for the later development of the child. For example, obesity of the father and the mother before pregnancy is a risk factor for a range of development problems for the baby.

‘Unfortunately, there is relatively little data available on the diets of parents before conception,’ Professor Oddy says. ‘Our diets are complex, with considerable variation across brands and recipes, so collecting reliable data is complicated too.’

Using data from the well-established West Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study, which has existed for more than 25 years, Professor Oddy is taking a strong multidisciplinary and collaborative approach regarding nutritional effects on infant, child and adolescent health. Since completion of her PhD she has had a clear rapid and continuing upward trajectory of research output. She achieved national recognition as one of the NHMRC ‘Ten of the Best’ in 2006 and an Achievement Award in 2010 for the top-ranked Career Development Fellowship (Level 2) in Population Health. Her work is consistently cited demonstrating leadership and influence and it receives consistent media exposure.

Projects

Collaboration to build laboratory capacity within Tasmania for measurement of iodine in biological samples (2018)$9,800
Description
Tasmania does not currently have accredited laboratory facilities to determine iodine concentration of biological samples collected in Tasmanian research studies and monitoring projects.Sending samples interstate or overseas is becoming prohibitively expensive.This collaboration will facilitate establishment of cost-effective laboratory capacity in Tasmania.The proposed project will test and validate three types of assays for determination of iodine concentration in a range of biological samples routinely collected in Tasmanian research projects.

Cardiometabolic risk trajectories from childhood to midlife: finding pathways to better health (2017 - 2020)$1,531,986
Description
Using data from a large cohort of Australian children followed for over 30 years, this study will investigate how weight status and physical fitness from childhood to adulthood determine early markers of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes (cardiometabolic disease) in midlife. It will provide much needed evidence to address the high prevalence of cardiometabolic disease risk factors in young Australians through better targeted disease prevention and early clinical intervention strategies.

Long-term influence of early nutrition on metabolic health: Grant transfer from Telethon Kids Institute (2016)$76,745
Description
Increasing evidence from European and other investigators around the world demonstrates that early nutrition has long-lasting programming effects for later health and disease risk. The most convincing evidence is for obesity and its associated disorders, that include metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma and certain cancers. The focus of this project is on the increasing public health importance and intergenerational nature of these problems.
