Description

Abstract Text:
This research targets low-income minority children and their mothers, and builds directly on our previous NJAES projects. In those investigations, we have been studying a cohort of black and Latina mothers, tracking their feeding behavior along with the energy intake, activity level, and growth of their infants. In the proposed project, we seek to examine both sides of the energy balance equation, using physical activity (PA) as a proxy for energy expenditure. Specifically, we seek to identify the age at which PA may begin to provide an insulating role against excess weight gain, as well as explore maternal feeding practices that have been identified in the literature as tied to childhood obesity.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
