Children of the 90s is a long-term health research project that started in the early 1990s. It recruited more than 14,000 pregnant women, and these women and their families have been involved ever since. The Children of the 90s project works with researchers all over the world.

Our participants

Our participants range from mums and their children to fathers, grandparents, brothers and sisters, and a new generation of 'children of the children of the 90s'

Children of the 90s has just been fantastic in so many ways. It has revealed some really profound insights into the way we grow and develop as humans. It's revealing important information not just for medics, for medicine, but for all of us
