The relationship between diet and selected anthropometric measurements of pregnant women in Jersey, UK and the birth status of the newborn. Cross-cultural study


Recent studies have demonstrated that nutrition and general lifestyle choices in pregnancy, a sensitive period of development, induce permanent changes in the physiology of the offspring. Moreover, nutrition and lifestyle choices have an impact on the long-term health of the offspring. Although current evidence-based recommendations for a well-balanced diet and healthy lifestyle are widely available, obesity prevention before, during and after pregnancy remains a challenge for healthcare practitioners and general public health.
