  • Summary up front:WHOLE FOODSGOOD ENOUGH BALANCE
  • What if ?Babies consume more caloriesMoms more likely to be concerned they need to supplementConventional infant formulas/baby food may contribute to the problem
  • Only 1/5 women who intend to breastfeed are still breastfeeding at 12 months post partumI wrote a guest blog re: the breastfeeding/bottlefeeding controversy in NYC’s Latch On Campaign August 2012I want to share with you a couple of the comments.
  • Over 1/3 of all BF hospitals in US are in California
  • So where can mothers get help?
  • So where can mothers get help?
  • Lactation rooms or cubbies at all WIC CentersBreastfeeding group education for participantsBreastfeeding individual education for participantsBreastfeeding support groupsElectric breast pump loan programBreastfeeding HelplineBreastfeeding Peer Counselor Program
  • Reductionist approach may be part of the problem
  • Most common concern noted is higher protein content that breastmilk
  • But breast milk is not a homogeneous product
  • Tsimane women eat wild game, fresh water fish and native cultivars of vegetables and grain
  • Martin queries if formula should reflect the fatty acid profile of breast milk from the indigenous women rather than that of women who are eating a Western diet
  • The authors propose…
  • California WIC has prepared several materials addressing a potential link between breastfeeding and protection against obesityA variety of flavors and nutrient compositionBoth the flavor and macronutrient content of breast milk is variable
  • Differences in hormonal responses to breast milk
  • Impact on self regulation
  • Can you imagine formula instructions with a three fold variation ?
  • > 20% lower incidence of obesity at age four
  • “The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that chemical management policy in the United States be revised to protect children and pregnant women and to better protect other populations.”
  • CHAMACOS studies have also revealed links between flame retardant concentrations in mothers’ blood and decreased fertility, lower birthweight babies and changes in thyroid hormone levels, even after controlling for exposure to pesticides and other environmental chemicals. And findings from other smaller studies have linked deficits in physical and mental development in young children to prenatal exposure to PBDEs.  UC Berkeley Press Release
  • PolybrominatedDiphenyl Ethers (PDEsB)
  • So now it’s time to introduce solids
  • Rice is recommended to minimize risk of allergic responseBut there are no good studies to show this is beneficial
  • Many publications continue to reinforce these conventional practices
  • So most babies eat infant cereals
  • The first ingredient is rice flour
  • Refined starches are used regularly and vigorously defended as safe for use in baby foods
  • Until very recently. In 2011 Dr. Green initiated his White Out CampaignDesigned to eliminate use of refined cereals in an infants diet.Not without controversy
  • Over 50% of physicians recommend infant cereal as a first food
  • The Feeding Infants and Toddler Study is a survey of current feeding trends. This is the 2008 data.+ longer duration of breastfeeding+ a delay in the introduction of complementary foods - low intakes of overall fruits and vegetables for all ages - low intake of iron-rich foods for 9- to 11.9-month-olds - use of cow's milk before age 1 year and the use of reduced-fat milks during the second year of life
  • Caregivers can moderate color, temperature, texture, and cultivate familiar flavors as baby is developmentally ready
  • It’s almost as if there are two different food supplies, and not as simple as organic vs. conventionalThe bigger difference seems to be whole foods vs. highly processed refined foods—even if they are organic
  • Greater processing typically leads to --reduction in total fiber content-- compromises the integrity of the grain
  • Sweetened cereals 6-9 mo 14% 9-12 mo 19%12-15 mo 31%15-18 mo 45 %18-24 mo 35%
  • We know infants and toddlers are not eating enough whole foodsThis is an algorithm that outlines an approach to introducing new foodsNew foods can take up to 12-16 exposures before they are acceptedHow many parents try 1, 2, 3 times and give up?They can be especially resistant to eating vegetables and proteinSome kids are picky eaters--mostly a sensory issue --deserves appropriate attention
  • The goal is to cultivate a palate that allows an adequate intake of --whole foods--good enough balance
  • The direction I would like to see it go

  • First FoodsBonnie Y. Modugno, MS, RD, CLEwww.muchmorethanfood.com #MMTF
  • FIRST FOODS Goals• BREASTFEEDING – Identify incidence of breastfeeding and factors that influence duration and exclusivity – Survey impact of current feeding practices – Compare differences between formula and breastfeeding – Identify role of pediatrician
  • FIRST FOODS Goals• Complimentary Foods – Assess conventional food choices – Survey traditional first foods – Identify options to promote growth, metabolic health and well being
  • Babies are born to be breastfed http://www.babyfriendlyusa.org/
  • BreastfeedingThe American Academy of PediatricsrecommendsExclusive breastfeeding for about 6 monthsContinued breastfeeding as complementaryfoods are introducedContinuation of breastfeeding for 1 year orlonger as mutually desired by mother and infant.Medical contraindications to breastfeeding arerare.Infant growth should be monitored with the WHOGrowth Curve up to 2 yrs of age February 27, 2012 Pediatrics Vol. 129 No. 3 March 1, 2012

  • Breastfeeding:Reality Check • “I tried with all 3 of my kids but found once I ran into problems, I wasnt given the support i needed, or the resources, but was directed to just switching to formula far too often. I wish there was more support for [breastfeeding] in agencies, government aid, and medical offices.” http://justanotherhat.blogspot.com/2012/08/brewing-breastfeeding-controversy.html Image: http://www.sleepytot.com/blog/do-formula-fed-babies-sleep-more

Need to return to work  Inadequate time to express milk  No place to express milk  No adequate storage http://www.heraldsun.com/view/full_story/9192782/article-“The Business Case for Breastfeeding” WORLD-BREASTFEEDING-WEEK--A-STEP-IN-THE- RIGHT-DIRECTION?instance=main_article DHHS/ Office of Women’s Healthhttp://www.cdph.ca.gov/healthinfo/healthyliving/childfamily/Pages/Californi aLawsRelatedtoBreastfeeding.aspx
  • Primary barriers to breastfeeding as intended3. Personal misgivings – Ambivalence – Fears – Lack of confidence – Influence of family and friends – Time and energy
  • Breastfeeding:Reality Check• “When I had my son the lactation consultant visit was a joke- it was about 5 minutes” http://justanotherhat.blogspot.com/2012/08/brewing-breastfeeding-controversy.html
  • Breastfeeding:Reality Check• “I tried SO. STINKIN. HARD. to breastfeed but ran into problems. The biggest hit, though, was the $30/fee to visit a lactation consultant” http://justanotherhat.blogspot.com/2012/08/brewing-breastfeeding-controversy.html

  • How Breastfeeding may protectagainst obesity1. Breastfed babies are more accepting of a greater variety of foods – Breastfed babies taste the variety of foods the mother is eating – Mother’s diet influences the macronutrient composition of her milk WIC WORKS: Policy Briefs by the California WIC Association; & PHFE WIC, Sept 2011
  • How Breastfeeding may protectagainst obesity2. Breastfed babies weigh less at one year – Breast milk has different impact on insulin and other metabolic hormones than formula • Use of WHO growth charts compliments the lower growth profile for breastfed babiesWIC WORKS: Policy Briefs by the California WIC Association; & PHFE WIC, Sept 2011
  • How Breastfeeding may protectagainst obesity 3. Breastfed infants tend to gain less weight and usually are leaner than are formula-fed infants in the second half of infancy, likely a result of infant self-regulation of energy intakeWIC WORKS: Policy Briefs by the California WIC Association; & PHFE WIC, Sept 2011
  • Breast milk: How much is enough? • Successful, exclusively breastfeeding babies show a three-fold variation in the amount of milk they take per day, and in the frequency of breastfeeds and amount of milk consumed during each breastfeed How Breastfeeding Works.

  • First Foods: Introducing solids The American Academy of Pediatrics reaffirms its recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for about 6 months, followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced, with continuation of breastfeeding for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant. Pediatrics Vol. 129 No. 3 March 1, 2012 pp. e827 -e841
  • Which complementary foods first? • Solid foods or supplemental foods were not routinely offered to babies less than one year of age before 1920.
  • The role of allergens:• Some have advised not introducing dairy products, eggs, wheat, nuts, and fish before the end of the first year of life, and then introducing only a limited number of foods with a low allergenicity, However, there are no well-designed studies to demonstrate the benefit of such advice. Pediatrics Vol. 106 No. Supplement 4 November 1, 2000 pp. 1285• Controlled studies demonstrating that restrictive diets after 6 months of age have an allergy-preventing effect have not been published (Halken and Host, 2001), and for this reason no such restrictions were advised by an international group of experts (WHO/IAACI, 2000).
  • Arguments forcommercial baby food Standard formulation Sterility Lack of additives “There is no nutritional difference between commercial and homemade baby food” Yeung, et al HJ Heinz Co. CMA Journal/January 15, 1982. Vol 126 pg 113

  • Are starch fillers used in baby food?Starches are easily digested carbohydrates, whichmay be present in baby foods in the form of flour(corn, wheat, rice), tapioca or rice…starches provide an important source of calories forgrowing infants. Food starches also help to moderateflavor and control texture.…The Food and Drug Administration has determinedthat food starches are safe and suitable for use inbaby foods
