See how they grow


Welcome to 

See How They Grow

  A study to help parents and carers learn about their child's growth.

Children's growth is an important sign of their health and development. Growth assessment is one of the easiest ways to examine the health and nutrition of children, because changes in health and nutrition almost always affect growth.

Over the last 18 months researchers at the National Institute for Health Innovation have undertaken a set of research activities aimed at developing a mobile app to capture and monitor your child(ren)’s growth, initially from birth to 2 years, but in the long term from birth to 5 years. The goal of the app is to see if it can help parents and carers to recognise an unhealthy body weight in the child and provide strategies and actions to make change.
