Rapid Infant Weight Gain Linked to Childhood Obesity
Date:3/30/2009

many, water fountains were installed in 32 schools located in poor areas of two German cities. Teachers then presented four lesson plans to second- and third-grade students about the benefits of water consumption.

The study found that the students who attended these schools were 31 percent less likely to become overweight than those who attended other schools not involved in the study.

Both studies are to be published in the April issue of Pediatrics.

"The researchers themselves identified that we need to study caregiver and infant relationships, since other studies have shown when there is a lack of a bonding during feeding, infants will change what they eat," says Diekman. "In addition, other potential confounders need to be removed, and then the study repeated, to see if weight gain during pregnancy is a factor."

"Our study raises a lot of questions about the reason rapid infant weight gain results in obesity later on," Taveras said. "We need more research to identify the factors that explain this relationship."
