Abstract This is a review of a cross-sectional study and of a follow-up on food consumption, growth and development of Dutch children fed a macrobiotic diet. Anthropometric measurements and food frequency data were collected in 1985 and again in 1987. The children were at the time of data collection: 0-8 years and 2-10 years of age, respectively. Growth retardation was observed from the age of 6 months onwards. Five to six months before the follow-up took place, it was recommended to consume more dairy products, fish and fat. No catch-up growth was observed in the follow-up study, except for those who mean-while increased their consumption of dairy products and fish. In 1993 a second follow-up was performed.
