In our longitudinal study on the influence of nutrition upon health during infancy we found in a cohort of 556 infants in good health, 6.4% of infants at six months with a total serum cholesterol level above 200 mg/100 ml. Because of the known importance of hypercholesterolemia for health we studied the role of the food intake patterns during the first six months in relation to the serum cholesterol. We analysed the 24 hours dietary recalls, the dietary habits and a set of biochemical determinations used for evaluation of nutritional status: 35 infants, 21 girls and 14 boys, were compared with a control group matched for sex and birth date. There were no differences in mean body weight and socio-demographic characteristics. Daily energy and protein intake was higher in the study group. Analysing milk consumption we found that the daily intake was always higher in the high cholesterol group. The solid foods were introduced earlier in the study group, i.e. for 46% of infants in the second week of life. The serum levels of vitamins A, C, and E, and of triglyceride were higher in the high cholesterol groups. At twelve months 33% of infants with the cholesterol level above 200 mg/100 ml we included in the studied group remain still with a high level. This tendency underlines the need of further research.
