Moms-to-be who pile on the pounds when pregnant could be exposing their unborn children to lower intelligence; schizophrenia, behavioral problems and eating disorders.
Pregnant women have traditionally reserved the right to ‘eat for two’ but new research says gaining too much weight during pregnancy is dangerous to children’s development.
A new report advises parents and care givers to follow food guidelines and portion-control when it comes to feeding their young children.
The Institute of Medicine reports that children aged two to five are getting fatter faster, and it has a lot to do with the amount — or lack there of — of physical activity. Contrary to popular belief, kids do not “outgrow” their baby fat and parents need to step up and start making healthier and smarter choices when it comes to their children’s diet and exercise.
It’s hard for working moms and dads to prepare healthy meals and get the family together for a sit down dinner, but it might be more important than you think.
Hiding the oreos and banning sodas isn’t enough! A new study shows that kids who eat a meal with their parents at least three times a week were 12 percent “less likely to be overweight!” But that’s not all, they are 20 percent less likely to eat junk food, and 35 percent less like to skip meals.
Research shows that overweight pregnant women have a greater chance of miscarrying or burying their child before their baby’s first birthday.
It is always recommended to be at a healthy weight pre-pregnancy and this new study proves that point. Women who plan on carrying a child should be more cautious about watching their weight, considering obesity could lead to a greater chance of miscarriages or premature baby deaths.
So sad. At 130 pounds, 3-year-old Lu Hao, from China, weighs five times more than normal kids his age. The problem is, his distraught parents have tried to stop their toddler from gorging on third and fourth helpings of food, but they are completely afraid of him! WHAT!? They say he throws terrible tantrums if he doesn’t get his way.
It seems that the global epidemic of obesity starts earlier than we think! A new study shows that 32 percent of the babies involved were considered overweight or obese at 9 months!
According to a long-term study, babies could be considered overweight or obese as early as 9-months-old. In the study of more than 7,500 babies across the country, nearly 32 percent of the infants were considered too heavy. “It definitely raised eyebrows when we saw how early it was showing up,” said Brian Moss, an adjunct professor at Wayne State University and author of new research in the American Journal of Health Promotion to MSNBC. And experts say the only way to monitor weight gain is focus on the quality and quantity of a baby’s diet.

Montreal nightclub Muzique posted a message on their Facebook page reading ‘NO FAT GIRLS ALLOWED!!!!!!’ — but in my opinion, this kind of discrimination is NOT a laughing matter
I’ve heard some serious BS in my life, but I’d have to say this report ranks pretty high on my list of the most ridiculous, unfair and unfortunate things I’ve yet to encounter. A Montreal nightclub has placed a tongue-in-cheek ban on fat girls. Yeah, that’s hilarious. Read more
