Infant-feeding, TV, and activity practices may increase obesity risk

According to a new study related to ‘obesogenic’ behaviors puts up the common careless behaviors among the parents even despite of their race or society. The act of casual infant feeding increases the chances of child’s risk for obesity in later stage of their lives. Usually it is the black parents putting children to bed with a bottle and watch TV on the other hand Hispanic parents encourages children to finish eating and then report less while a baby lays on the belly to play in parent supervision. These acts might lead to obesity in kids. The expert’s advice parents to be more careful while treating their infants. Eliana M. Perrin, MD, MPH, lead author of the study, associate professor of pediatrics in the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and UNC-Chapel Hill's associate vice chancellor for research explains,“These results from a large population of infants—especially the high rates of television watching—teach us that we must begin obesity prevention even earlier. That counseling should be culturally-tailored, and we are hoping our research sheds light on the best ways to do that.”
