The authors examined whether socioeconomic position (SEP), picky eating behavior, and parental feeding practices influence weight change over time. Findings from the study "indicate that the combination of eating behavior and SEP are associated with differential infant growth patterns. These results suggest that eating behavior and SEP should be included in the development of interventions designed to achieve healthy weight during childhood."
