The researchers found that these children face an increased risk of obesity, and that they experience the negative effects of obesity sooner rather than later. Their findings are based on a study of lambs whose mothers were on a restricted diet during their pregnancy and who were later permitted to gain weight. The lambs had a reduced capacity to store fat compared to fat lambs whose mothers were not on a restricted diet. According to the researchers, the lambs with reduced fat capacity will deposit fat in other organs including the heart.
