This randomized clinical trial examines the effect of a responsive parenting intervention on infant weight gain between birth and 28 weeks and overweight status at age 1 year.
This cohort study examines whether early-life antibiotic use in children is associated with the long-term effects of breastfeeding on weight development and lifetime antibiotic use.
This longitudinal study tested whether genetic risk for obesity is associated with accelerated weight gain in middle childhood (ages 4-8 years) and whether genetic association with accelerated weight gain is mediated by appetite traits.
This cohort study examines whether increased growth in infants is associated with the risk of childhood-onset type 1 diabetes.
Gilbert-Diamond et al assess the prospective association between a bedroom television and change in body mass index, independent of television viewing, in a nationally representative sample of US children and adolescents.
Based on the UK Gemini population-based twin cohort, van Jaarsveld et al test the hypothesis that sibling differences in infant appetite predicted differential weight gain during childhood. Growth trajectories were analyzed from birth to age 15 months. Appetite during the first 3 months was assessed with the Baby Eating Behaviour Questionnaire.
Santos et al assessed the effectiveness of a peer-led healthy living program called Healthy Buddies on weight gain and its determinants when disseminated at the provincial level to elementary school students.
Taveras et al examined the extent to which racial/ethnic disparities in adiposity and overweight are explained by differences in risk factors during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood.
