Pregnancy and Junk Food

Women may want to watch what they consume when they're eating for two.

New research from London suggests women who eat a lot of junk food when pregnant or breast-feeding could be setting their children up for unhealthy food habits.

The research was done using rats.

The ones that were fed a diet high in fat and sugar.. such as donuts and cookies had offspring that tended to overeat and preferred junk food over regular food.
