Abstract: The association between childhood obesity and maternal smoking and/or paternal
smoking has been reported. However, few studies have explored the association between childhood obesity and exposure to carers’ smoking status This study aimed to assess the impact of carers’ smoking status on childhood obesity in a cohort of children enrolled in the Growing up in Ireland ( study Participants from the GUI infant cohort were categorized into four groups based on their exposure status; Neither caregiver smoked
60 4 only primary caregiver smoked 13 4 both caregivers smoked 10 9 Exposure to primary carers’ smoking 98 are biological mothers) was found to be significantly associated with childhood overweight/obesity at age three
(Odds Ratio 1 30 95 CI 1 17 1 46 and at age five (OR 1 31 95 CI 1 16 1 49 Exposure to both carers’ smoking status was significantly associated with increased odds of childhood overweight/obesity across both waves. These findings emphasize the health burden of childhood obesity that may be attributable to maternal smoking postnatally and through
early childhood in Ireland.
Summary: Exposure to both carers’ smoking status was significantly associated with increased odds of childhood overweight/obesity across both waves. References: 1. Lissau , I. Overweight and obesity epidemic among children. Answer
