Abstract:
There is a large body of research on the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes of children of depressed mothers. However, little research has been done on whether maternal perinatal depression affects child obesity. Thus, the proposed study will be critically relevant to the current public health epidemic of obesity. The objective of the proposed study will be to examine the correlation between maternal depression and child obesity risk.
