Breastfeeding reduces the risk of the child developing obesity before the age of 20. Critical nutrition during the first two years of life has long-term consequences on health that can persist into adulthood. A study that began in 1984 also clearly shows that higher fat intake at 2 years of age also brings a reduction in fat mass at 20 years of age. Well, breast milk is naturally high in fat with a small proportion of protein. High fat content is prerequisite to meeting a child’s high energy requirements for growth and the rapid development of the brain and central nervous system. Don’t even presume to have a healthier child by feeding low-fat, low-calorie, high protein food products because restricting fats at critical phases of development program the child’s metabolism makes it more likely to become overweight later. Take a lesson from God’s recipe: – breast milk! The perfect formulation for growing infants.
