Associate Professor Anne-Louise Heath

BSc(Hons) BA(Hons) PhD(Otago)

Anne-Louise HeathEmail anne-louise.heath@otago.ac.nz

Anne-Louise is currently an Associate Professor in te Tari Kai Tōtika Takata o te Whare Wānanga o Ōtākou – the Department of Human Nutrition at the University of Otago, New Zealand. Her areas of research interest are iron nutrition, infant nutrition, and the use of food-based strategies to improve nutritional status and health.

She is Co-Principal Investigator for the Health Research Council funded First Foods New Zealand (FFNZ) study investigating the impact of baby food pouches and baby-led weaning on iron deficiency, growth, choking and dental health in infants; Co-Principal Investigator for the Ministry for Primary Industries funded Young Foods New Zealand (YFNZ) study investigating diet in children 1-4 years of age; and an Investigator for the Prevention of Overweight in Infancy (POI) study – a large randomised controlled trial of the effects of infant diet and sleep on growth.

Recent projects include: the Baby-Led Introduction to SolidS (BLISS) study investigating the benefits and possible risks of a baby-led approach to complementary feeding (a modified version of Baby-Led Weaning). Along with “A Good Night’s Sleep” investigating the influence of alterations in the gut microbiota on infant sleep, and the Toddler Food Study investigating the efficacy of dietary interventions for preventing the development of iron and other micronutrient deficiencies in toddlers.

Anne-Louise is a member of the Technical Advisory Group for the Development of the New Zealand Nutrition Survey; was a member of the Technical Advisory Group for Review of Nutrition Guidance for Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women, and Infants and Toddlers for the Ministry of Health; and her research team’s work has been cited by a wide range of international health agencies.

Associate Professor Heath coordinates the following papers:

HUNT 241 “Fundamentals of Nutrients and Health”
HUNT 242 “Nutritional Assessment”
HUNT 454 “Nutritional Biostatistics”
