Starting solid foods early causes obesity

Starting solid foods early causes obesity

Researchers emphasize the importance of breastmilk especially during the first 6 months and emphasize the lack of solid food other than breastmilk in the early period.

Parents need to be a little patient to feed their babies with solid food and don't start giving solid food to babies in 4-6 months.

Feeding the baby exclusively with breast milk during this period reduces the risk of the baby becoming obesity in the coming years and is also important in terms of having a healthy childhood and adulthood.

Previous studies had conflicting results, and it was not known whether early introduction of solid foods increased the risk of obesity. This study proved that the risk of being overweight in the future is increased especially for infants fed with food and passing to solid foods early.
