Over-feeding in infancy might set the stage for childhood obesity

early in an infant's life of those born to obese mothers, possibly accelerated with complementary food intake, might set the stage for future childhood obesity."

All the children followed during this study had the same average weight, the same metabolic rate, were as physically active and spent the same average energy over 24 hours.

"Assuming that approximately 4900 kilocalories are needed per kilogram of body weight gain, it would take the infants of obese biological mothers a considerable amount of time to become obese if they would continue ingesting this amount of excess calories each day. This might explain why investigators report that it takes up to two years before a noticeable gain of body fat is observed in young children," say the authors. They add, "all these data suggest that maternal influences on infant body composition may not appear initially as obvious physical differences during the first six months of life".

This is in line with previous studies, which showed that obesity doesn't manifest itself until 2 years of age.
