Abstract

Synthesis of effects of infant feeding interventions to prevent childhood obesity is limited by outcome measurement and reporting heterogeneity. Core outcome sets (COS) represent standardised approaches to outcome selection and reporting. The aim of this review is to identify feeding outcomes used in infant feeding studies to inform an infant feeding COS for obesity prevention interventions. The databases EMBASE, Medline, CINAHL, CENTRAL, and PsycINFO databases, searched from inception to February 2017. Studies eligible for inclusion must examine any infant feeding outcome in children ≤1 year. Feeding outcomes include those measured using self-report and/or observational methods, and include dietary intake, parent-child interaction, and parental beliefs, among others. Data were extracted using a standardised data extraction form. Outcomes were assigned to outcome domains using an inductive, iterative process with a multidisciplinary team. We identified 82 unique outcomes, representing 9 outcome domains. Outcome domains were: 'breast and formula feeding', 'introduction of solids', 'parent feeding practices and styles', 'parent knowledge and beliefs', 'practical feeding', 'food environment', 'dietary intake', 'perceptions of infant behaviour and preferences', and 'child weight outcomes'. Heterogeneity in definition and frequency of outcomes was noted in reviewed studies. 'Introduction of solids' (59.5%) and 'breastfeeding duration' (55.5%) were the most frequently reported outcomes. Infant feeding studies focus predominantly on consumption of milks and solids, and infant weight. Less focus is given to modifiable parental and environmental factors. An infant feeding COS can minimise heterogeneity in selection and reporting of infant feeding outcomes for childhood obesity prevention interventions.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 15. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 June 2019.
All research outputs
#2,360,654
of 25,093,754 outputs
Outputs from Maternal & Child Nutrition
#250
of 1,416 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#47,779
of 349,988 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Maternal & Child Nutrition
#9
of 46 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,093,754 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 90th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,416 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 14.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 349,988 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 46 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
