Scientists: Feeding solid babies increases the risk of diabetes
Newborns up to the age of 6 months should not be given solid food.
Otherwise, according to researchers, the child's risk of developing diabetes increases.
Such conclusions were obtained in the course of the experiment with the involvement of more than 1,500 children aged from 6 months to 3 years.
Observations on children showed that about 30% of babies were fed by parents in accordance with generally accepted recommendations. We are talking about breast milk and special mixtures.
Complementary feeding such children began to receive only after reaching 6 months of age.
The child can be given solid food after he learns to hold his head on his own and sit without support.
