Guidelines for introducing solid foods to infants may lead to unhealthy weight

NIH-supported research calls for well-defined standards for infants between 6 months and 1 year.

Common recommendations from hospitals and infant formula manufacturers for introducing solid foods to infants could raise the risk of overfeeding or underfeeding, suggests a computer modeling study funded by the National Institutes of Health. The study, led by Bruce Y. Lee, M.D., executive director of the Global Obesity Prevention Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, was supported by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. It appears in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine.
