Breastfeeding is a classic aspect of health, which has benefits for both children and mothers in the long and short terms. In Europe, the obesity epidemic for children becomes an urgent problem needed to be solved. Recent research indicates that prolonging breastfeeding time would reduce the proportion of obesity and overweight. Breastfeeding has been seen as a protective factor. In this article, we make a secondary analysis of the data from several European countries in the WHO European…

Association between Characteristics at Birth, Breastfeeding and Obesity in 22 Countries: The WHO European Childhood Obesity Surveillance Initiative – COSI 2015/2017
The present work confirms the beneficial effect of breastfeeding against obesity, which was highly increased if children had never been breastfed or had been breast fed for a shorter period, and adoption of exclusive breastfeeding is below global recommendations and far from the target endorsed by the WHO Member States.
Adipokines in Breast Milk: An Update
The presence of these adipokines in breast milk suggests that they may be responsible for the regulation of growth in early infancy and that they could influence the energy balance and development of metabolic disorders in childhood and adulthood.
Does Breastfeeding Protect Against Childhood Obesity? Moving Beyond Observational Evidence
This review includes an overview of observational findings to date, then focuses on three specific pathways that connect human milk and infant physiology: maternal obesity, microbiome development in the infant, and the development of taste preference and diet quality.

As a nation, the authors must confront the epidemic increase in child obesity, and usher in a new, and much-needed, era of cooperation between consumers, industry, health advocacy organiza tions, and media companies.
Infant-Feeding Practices Among African American Women
The social-ecological model is used to explore the personal, socioeconomic, psychosocial, and cultural factors that affect the infant feeding decision-making processes of African American women and the implications for clinical practice and research to eliminate current disparities in rates of breastfeeding are discussed.
Biological underpinnings of breastfeeding challenges: the role of genetics, diet, and environment on lactation physiology.
An overview of the current understanding of the role of maternal genetics and modifiable factors, such as diet and environmental exposures, on reproductive endocrinology, lactation physiology, and the ability to successfully produce milk is provided.
Management of Obesity in Adults: European Clinical Practice Guidelines
Doctors have a responsibility to recognise obesity as a disease and help obese patients with appropriate prevention and treatment, and treatment should be based on good clinical care and evidence-based interventions and obesity treatment should focus on realistic goals and lifelong management.
