One third of US babies are obese or at risk for obesity, said researchers who monitored around 8,000 babies from 9 months to 2 years and also found that those were obese at 9 months had the highest risk of being obese at 2 years.



Dr Brian G. Moss, from the School of Social Work, Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and Dr William H. Yeaton, from the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, published their analysis of children's early weight trajectories from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort (ECLS-B) in the January/February 2011 issue of the American Journal of Health Promotion, which is available online.



The ECLS-B draws from a nationally representative sample of American children born in the year 2001 and with diverse socioeconomic and racial/ethnic backgrounds.
