Study says drinking milk before bed causes 30% increase in pediatric obesity
Experts suggest that children should be gradually weaned (including breast milk and milk) when they are 6 months old.
However, many parents continue to give their children milk (formula, whole or semi-skimmed milk) before they go to bed to help their children fall asleep better.
Even after the child has eaten solid foods, many parents continue to let their children drink milk before bedtime.
According to a report by the British “Daily Mail” on May 5, a new study published in the American “Pediatrics” magazine found that children who often drink milk before going to bed are more likely to develop overweight or obesity in the future.
Children who often drink milk before bedtime at the age of two have a 30% increased risk of obesity by the age of five and a half.
In the new study, more than 7,000 children were surveyed by American scientists, and their diet and physical condition were studied when the children were 9 months old, 2 years old, 4 1/2 years old, and 5 1/2 years old.
It was found that 22 children aged 2 who still drank milk before bedtime.
9% of children have overdose by the age of five and a half.
Among children who do not drink milk before bedtime, this proportion is only 16%.
The researchers’ results are still valid after taking into account factors such as the child’s mother’s weight and the child’s birth weight.
Researchers have warned parents that when children start eating solid foods, continuing to drink milk in large quantities will cause excess nutrition and increase the risk of obesity.
Researchers said that 8-constant (about 227 grams) milk contains 150 calories of carbonic acid, which is 12% of the conversion required by a child aged 1-2 a day.
However, researchers said that the findings are not a recommendation for doctors to encourage newborns to wean their children thoroughly after the age of one.
