Scientists find that a pregnant woman's diet could influence her child's risk of obesity.
British researchers conducted a study that shows what a mother eats could effect her child's DNA and health.
Scientists claim the effect on a child's DNA has nothing to do with how overweight or thin the mother is.
They say it's a combination of the mother's eating habits, genes, and overall lifestyle.
Researchers suggest the study should help all pregnant women improve their nutrition.
Their report will be published next week in the journal 'Diabetes.'
