May Raise Adult Obesity Risk!
New mothers with newborn babies, and sometimes even women who are not first-time mothers, often find themselves at a loss when a baby is still fussy despite being fed and dry-bottomed. Unfortunately, the first inclination is to feed more, which is often not the answer at all. In fact, what we feed our babies is very important, and the early introduction of cereals and juices and giving babies high carbohydrate infant formulas may cause an increased risk for obesity in later years.
Feeding our babies in this manner is called “metabolic programming,” and the risks associated with it may carry over into future generations, according to the findings of a recent study.
The study, the results revealed that rats fed with high-carbohydrate diets as infants or early in life exhibited over-production of insulin and permanent changes in their pancreatic cells. The insulin abnormality is a contributor to human adult obesity. The children of the high-carbohydrate female rats became obese with high insulin levels as they matured.
“Overfeeding of formula and
early introduction of
supplemental weaning foods …
May be the culprits.”
We are always looking at what happens later in life. Maybe we should be looking at the role of early metabolic programming. Metabolic signals in the body reset in response to high carbohydrate diets, this induces the permanent changes in the rats.
Overfeeding of formula and early introduction of supplemental weaning foods such as cereals, fruits, and juices that are high in carbohydrates may be the culprits.
So what does this mean to us? Obviously, it means that mothers have to fight the urge to feed fussy infants cereal to get them to sleep.
Instead, try giving them more formula, or changing formulas. Ask your natural-oriented doctor for solutions before deciding it’s time to add foods and juices to your baby’s diet – if you don’t, you just might be making a fat adult.
It’s every mother or caretakers responsibility to feed your child properly – when you start them off with junk – their bodies become a garbage full of chemicals, toxins, pesticides, etc. They deserve better – don’t you agree?
Besides, you don’t want to make your child a food addict – let your mistakes be their blessing.
