C-Section and Child Obesity
[URL="http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/c-section-doubles-the-chance-of-child-obesity-study/story-e6frfku0-1226365522714"]This[/URL] is an article on news.com.au about an article published in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood today. It suggests a link between c-sections and children who qualify as 'obese' (by their BMI) by age 3, and that the possible cause could have to do with gut bacteria being affected by a c-section. There is a link in the article to the journal article.

C-Section and Child Obesity
I can see this as a possibility, but really it could also be said that obese women also are more likely to end up with a c-section due to pregnancy complications. Therefore if the three year old has an obese mother, the child is more likely to have bad food and activity habits.

This is interesting. I'm not sure how they controlled the study, but I was thinking also that more women might struggle with breastfeeding following a c-section (and it has been in the news recently that not breastfeeding has been linked with childhood obesity).

RE: C-Section and Child Obesity
We cannot avoid kids eating to much but it's important not to shame kids when they are overweight because it can cause them to become overweight in the long run. Instead, parents should focus on teaching healthy eating habits and increasing self-confidence.
