Mom's Unhealthy Diet May Have Long-Term Impact on Baby

Rats fed junk food had higher cholesterol, blood fats into adulthood, British study finds

MONDAY, June 30 (HealthDay News) -- Eating an unhealthy diet during pregnancy may raise your child's lifetime risk of obesity and elevated cholesterol and blood sugar levels, British researchers report.

In tests on rats, a Royal Veterinary College team fed one group of females a diet of processed junk food such as donuts, muffins, cookies, chips and sweets during pregnancy and breast-feeding, while another group of females received a healthy diet of regular feed.

The offspring of the junk food-fed mothers also had higher levels of glucose and insulin, both of which increase the risk of type 2 diabetes.

These rats remained fatter through adolescence and into adulthood than the offspring of the mothers who ate a healthier diet during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

The study was published in the current issue of The Journal of Physiology.

"We always say 'you are what you eat.' In fact, it may be true that 'you are what your mother ate.' This does not mean that obesity and poor health is inevitable, and it is important that we take care of ourselves and live a healthy lifestyle.
