No Intervention: Bright Futures
This represents 'usual care' in the pediatric office. The anticipatory guidance regarding nutrition is based on the Bright Futures Pocket Guide.
Experimental: Maternal focused intervention
Childhood obesity prevention was approached in this arm via anticipatory guidance aimed at maternal eating habits.
Behavioral: Maternal focused intervention
This is a series of information given to mothers at child's well child visits (6 in all) starting at the newborn visit focused in maternal eating habits, using the mother as a potential 'agent of change' for the family and infant in modeling healthy eating habits.
Other Name: MOMS
Active Comparator: Ounce of Prevention
This is a program of anticipatory guidance given to mothers of infants ages 2 weeks to one year which focuses on serving size per age and tips for introducing new foods for the infant.
Behavioral: Ounce of Prevention
This intervention is given via a series of handouts given to mothers at their child's well visit from newborn period to one year of age, focusing on serving size and frequency and the introduction of new foods.
Other Name: "Ounce"
- Infant weight for height [ Time Frame: One year after study entry ]Infant weight for height will be assessed to see if proportions of elevated weight for height are lower in intervention groups as compared to usual care.
- Maternal feeding behaviors [ Time Frame: One year after study entry. ]Several maternal feeding behaviors, including amount of vegetables and fruit offered to infant, eating as a 'family', amount of television watching by the infant, and juice intake by the infant were secondary outcomes.
