To systematically assess the F contents of foods and beverages commonly ingested by infants and children in Hong Kong; to estimate the daily total F intake of a cohort of about 170 children at ages six months, 2 years and 4 years. The estimated daily total F intake will be assessed by careful analysis of the consumption of water, beverages and food after the F content of the individual food/drink items have been determined; to assess the oral health status of this group of children in Shatin annually from 3 till 8 years of age with particular emphasis on the prevalence of enamel fluorosis.
