Reviews research into the long-lasting effects on the future health of her children of the diet of a woman during pregnancy. Records show that on average, the bigger the baby at birth, the better that individual's health in later life. The smaller the baby, the more prone it would be to heart disease, strokes and diabetes in middle-age. The programme considers deeper research into many other aspects of perinatal nutrition which affect health in later life, and reveals the work of scientists hoping to discover precisely which nutrients are best for the pregnant woman.
