LONDON - Aug. 9, 2018 - PRLog -- A US study that took place over three years, provided mothers with 'responsive parenting' in the first 6 months in their own homes after the birth of their child, this means the parents were provided with alternatives to responding to children's behaviour, with actions other than food or milk unless hungry. The results very quickly showed a lower BMI in the children of the responsive parenting group and in particular in the girls. "At educogym Moorgate we obviously have a huge focus on nutrition and fitness, but also on the mind and this plays a huge part in our programs and we believe this plays a huge part in life. The results may upset some parents due to guilt, and of course there are exceptions to these results for medical reasons, and this is just one study so far, but regardless I do think it is very likely that behaviour learnt at a young age could definitely affect that child and there relationship with food when they are older" explained Godfrey Nurse, Educogym Moorgate personal trainer.

It is very common for food to be used for soothing or comfort in young children, which in turn could lead to a comfort relationship with food, which in turn could lead to obesity. "If this study was repeated on a larger scale, and proved time and time again to be true, it would be a huge push for the government to introduce more education for new parents, which at Educogym Moorgate we strongly believe is the most important thing to help the obesity epidemic" stated Sanj Bains, educogym Moorgate personal trainer.

The test group focused on mothers as overall they were the most involved in the first months and years of life, and it focused on alternatives to feeding a fussy baby, sleep routines, recognising signals of being hungry or full and physical activities. "There is not really much of this study I disagree with" conformed Godfrey nurse Educogym Moorgate personal trainer "feeding a baby who isn't hungry, or over feeding, or using food to sleep will of course teach that child that food is comfort, of course it is easier said than done but educating parents to really understand their babies cues is vital to give them a good relationship with food".
