This study aims to prevent obesity in children from an early age, at which time the child’s tendency to overweight is increasing. Obesity prevention should begin with or even before a child is born.
Mothers who are overweight during pregnancy, are at increased risk for overweight children as well. The obesity risk increased by two-fold and look at the time a child reaches school age.
Of 8,000 preschool children studied, more than 30 percent of the children had mothers who are overweight at the time of the first trimester of pregnancy. At the time of the child’s age 4 years, nearly 1 of every 4 children born to mothers who are obese, compared with less than 1 in 10 children born to mothers who are not overweight.
Relationship between obese mothers with obesity in children, possibly due to genes inherited obesity in mothers to their children. Another possibility, since the mother is obese will affect the development of the fetus in the womb. In addition, the mother will give the wrong diet and lack of physical activity that makes kids obese.

Mom would give Colostrum (milk that comes out on the first days after birth) were filled with IgA. This supply will continue to come baby when he gets milk from his mother.
However, the body’s defense system is still not too strong. Because of that, he needs to be introduced with germs via a secure way. This is the reason why immunization should be carried out.
