Nancy Krebs shares with students her experience and the scientific studies performed on obesity, explaining that early childhood is a great stage to treat and prevent the excessive weight on future youngsters and adults. She comments on what practices and behaviors affect the weight of infants, including feeding practices, food choices and physical activity, elaborating as well, on the maternal factors which also influence the risk of heaviness on toddlers. Finally, Krebs recommends clinicians to address parents on the impact of the exclusiveness of breastfeeding against formula or combination feeding, and to promote the health and diet of mothers, emphasizing the fact that the outcome of the well-being of their babies will eventually relate back to them.
