This talk provides an overview of the research on the association between infant feeding during the first year and the risk of childhood obesity. Discover what we’ve learned about the effects of feeding method on milk intake and feeding dynamics (breast versus bottle), how milk composition affects body function and appetite (human milk versus infant formula), and whether what’s in the bottle makes a difference. Learn also about other factors that may affect the risk of obesity during childhood and beyond.
