Infants with big appetites: The role of a nonfood environment on infant appetitive traits linked to obesity


The researchers looked at the literature and found that infants between the ages of 9-18 months were influenced by food focused activities as well as non-food activities. These activities could help influence whether the infants would possibly become obese in the future. They suggested developing fun non-food focused activities (playing with bubbles, musical instruments) mitigated the possibility of developing obesity.

TL;DR Infants involved with a high amount of food rewarded events tend to be obese as adults
