Un estudio reveló que una medida para evitar obesidad en el futuro de los bebés es alimentarlos con leche materna, incluso por un poco más de tiempo de lo normal, e impedir el consumo de bebidas azucaradas.

La investigación publicada en American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indica: “Las madres que amamantan a sus bebés y a menudo les dan jugos o Gatorade, no se dan cuenta de que eso tiene un efecto contrario”.

Jaimie Davis, profesora de University of Southern California, explicó que los niños que son amamantados durante el primer año de vida son 55 por ciento menos propensos que aquellos que consumieron bebidas azucaradas a edades tempranas.

Incluso, agrega Davis, aquellos que jamás habían consumido bebidas azucaradas o dulces llegaban a ser hasta 70 por ciento menos propensos.

Los investigadores aseguran que, si bien las bebidas azucaradas no inciden en ello, sí se sugiere que la leche materna predispone al metabolismo para proteger a los niños de la obesidad.

Breast milk prevents babies future obesity
Babies who were breastfed longest and drank few or no sugary beverages were about half as likely to be obese as kids who weren’t breastfed or who consumed the most sugary drinks, in a new study of Hispanic children in southern California.

The research, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, is one of the first looks at the combined effects of breastfeeding and how many sugary drinks, like soda and juice drinks, children consume in the first few years of their lives.

Past studies have suggested that breastfeeding is linked to a lower risk of obesity in children; however, Jaimie Davis, the study’s lead author and a professor at the University of Southern California, said mothers will also give their babies and toddlers sugary drinks.

“What happens is that they’re breastfeeding and they’re often giving their kids juice or Gatorade,” said Davis. “They don’t realize it’s having the counter effect.”

Davis and her colleagues compared children who were only breastfed for the first year of their lives without drinking beverages containing added sugar to children who were breastfed for shorter periods or not at all and who did get sugary drinks.

All the children were between the ages of two and four, and were included in a database of families in Los Angeles County receiving financial assistance to purchase food.

Through phone interviews and the use of height and weight records, the researchers determined that 15 percent of the 1,480 children in the study were obese. Another 27 percent were overweight.

They found that kids who were only breastfed for at least the first year of their life – 326 of the children – were about 55 percent less likely to be obese than children who were not breastfed.
