A new study by researchers at Temple University adds to growing evidence that infant weaning beginning at about age one is most likely to lead to more optimal childhood and adult health outcomes in the developed world. The new research tracked continued bottle feeding at age two and showed a strong correlation with obesity at age five, an established marker for later adult health problems.
