Healio reported, “Ultra-processed food intake among mothers was associated with an increased risk for overweight and obesity among their children.
This is according to researchers who “analyzed two sets of data: one to assess the effect during pregnancy and one that followed the children after they were born.”
“Our study highlights the potential benefits of limiting ultra-processed food consumption among mothers and women of reproductive age to reduce the risk of overweight in their children,” the researchers wrote.
These findings were published in The BMJ.
