“Greedy” infants are defined subjectively, either they ingest too much daily milk or cry due to excessive hunger when the ingested volumes are limited.
At present, few studies have focused on these infants. Due to excessive meal volumes and/or the early addition of infant cereals intended to satisfy their appetite and, as a result, an excessive weight gain during the first months, this population of infants may develop into overweight adults.
In this study, the change in the casein to whey proteins ratio, quantity of lactose and lipid fraction in the composition of the formula is a modifying factor of gastric evacuation that can be used to control satiety without increasing the volume or energy density of meals for these children. Greater objectivity on weight and growth is necessary. In the meantime, this study reveals greater comfort in feeding for infants and their parents.
