International health insurance customers expecting a child might want to pay heed to recent research showing that a mother's diet can impact her unborn child's health.
Conducted by a team at Southampton University, the study found that eating a balanced diet while pregnant will help to lower the risk of the child being obese or overweight.
British Heart Foundation Professor Mark Hanson, who led the research, explained that diet can impact the way in which the child's DNA is 'translated' into cell components that are used to build the body.
He explained: "Understanding the mechanism may also lead to new tests that can better predict obesity risk in children and target nutritional advice to those who most need it."
Professor Hanson added that parents should not forget about encouraging their child to exercise and follow a healthy diet in childhood and later life to avoid obesity.
