Why does physical activity during childhood matter? (12/12/2014)

Most scientific research on the topic of physical inactivity has focused on the consequences of physical inactivity for physical health, with significant attention to obesity and medical conditions such as diabetes. 'The Relation of Childhood Physical Activity to Brain Health, Cognition, and Scholastic Achievement' (Charles Hillman and colleagues, University of Illinois; Society for Research in Child Development), provides compelling new data on the consequences of physical inactivity for neural function, cognitive task performance, and academic achievement. ...> Full Article


Message to parents: Babies don't 'start from scratch' (8/21/2014)

There's now overwhelming evidence that a child's future health is influenced by more than just their parents' genetic material, and that children born of unhealthy parents will already be pre-programmed for greater risk of poor health, according to University of Adelaide researchers. ...> Full Article

By any stretch (6/30/2014)

After the hectic delivery experience, newborns are almost immediately stretched out on an uncomfortable measuring board to assess their length because it serves as an indispensable marker of growth, health, and development. Tel Aviv University researchers are using new software that harnesses computer vision to more accurately measure infant length. The technique is much easier on infants and at least as accurate as conventional measuring methods. ...> Full Article


Children who exercise have better body-fat distribution, regardless of their weight (5/22/2014)

Maybe the numbers on the scale aren't alarming, but that doesn't mean that healthy-weight children get a pass on exercising, according to a new University of Illinois study published in Pediatrics. ...> Full Article


Breastfeeding promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut (5/12/2014)

The nutritional factor that has the greatest impact on the development of a child's gut flora is whether the child is breastfed, according to a new study by the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, and the University of Copenhagen. The study shows that breastfeeding promotes the growth of beneficial lactic acid bacteria in the baby's gut flora, which are beneficial to the development of the child's immune system. ...> Full Article


Study is first to provide direct evidence that response of unborn children to glucose is associated with mother's insulin sensitivity (4/2/2014)

A study published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, is the first to provide direct evidence that fetal brain response to a dose of sugar given orally to its mother is associated with the mother's insulin sensitivity. This may indicate that the risk of subsequent obesity and diabetes may be pre-programmed in the womb. ...> Full Article


Excess weight at 1 year postpartum increases moms' risk for diabetes, heart problems (4/1/2014)

Study shows elementary and middle schools can get students moving, not just thinkingDespite widespread cuts to physical education classes and recess, an Indiana University study has shown that schools can play an important role in helping their students live healthier lives. Schools that implemented coordinated school health programs saw increases in students' physical activity. ...> Full Article


Offspring of mothers stressed during pregnancy with a passive stress coping style more prone to obesity (8/6/2013)

New animal research suggests greater risk for obesity and associated Type 2 diabetes in individuals that respond to stress in a passive manner and were born to mothers that were stressed during their pregnancy. ...> Full Article


Infants' food linked to higher, lower Type 1 diabetes risk (7/17/2013)

Infants who get their first solid food before 4 months of age and after six months may have a higher risk of developing Type 1 diabetes.

High-fat diet during pregnancy contributes to offspring's increased weight (6/25/2013)

Exposure to a high-fat diet in the womb and after birth can permanently change the cells in the brain that control food intake, predisposing monkeys to overeating and an increased preference for fatty and sugary foods, a new study finds. The results were presented Monday at The Endocrine Society's 95th Annual Meeting in San Francisco. ...> Full Article


Lose weight between babies, Saint Louis University study suggests (6/13/2013)

Lose weight between babies, Saint Louis University study suggestsA Saint Louis University study calls for women who are obese to lose weight between pregnancies and not to gain excessive weight when they are pregnant.

Animal study suggests that newborn period may be crucial time to prevent later diabetes (11/8/2011)

Pediatric researchers who tested newborn animals with an existing human drug used in adults with diabetes report that this drug, when given very early in life, prevents diabetes from developing in adult animals. If this finding can be repeated in humans, it may become a way to prevent at-risk infants from developing Type 2 diabetes. ...> Full Article


Parents keep diabetic teens on track (4/11/2010)

Teenagers and "tweenagers" with type 1 diabetes have more trouble sticking to their treatment plan -- thus raising their risk of blindness, kidney failure and heart disease -- if their parents become increasingly lax about monitoring the child's treatment, or if the mother-child relationship is poor. That's the conclusion of a new study by University of Utah psychologists. ...> Full Article
