Does Obesity Start in Infancy?

Dr John La Puma

A study presented at the American Dietetic Association Annual Meeting, published last year, shows that kids 1 to 2 years old require about 950 calories per day.

But the median intake for that age group is 1,220 calories — an excess of nearly 30 percent.

The story is reported in the Washington Post

The most powerful tool in preventing disease in kids and learning about childhood obesity is changing your environment. It’s easier than changing yourself. And it’s more effective. Learn how in a private program.
