Pressuring Children To Eat Increases Risk Of Obesity

New research in the September issue of Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, the official journal of the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, suggests that children's risk of obesity may become reduced if parents join an education program that shows them how to take the pressure off their kids to eat.

In order to take the pressure off of children to eat certain foods, parents should be educated in an approach based on "division of responsibility" (DOR) for eating, according to a team led by Dr. W. Stewart Agras of Stanford University.

The finding supports the theory that the DOR approach can improve a healthy development of appetite and eating behaviors in young children.

The finding supports the Law of Thermodynamics - the fewer the Calories you eat, the less your likelihood of getting fat.
