Children of obese women from a RCT
Children born to obese women who were in the active intervention arm of the randomized controlled trial LiP. The lifestyle intervention during pregnancy consisted of two major components: dietary counseling and physical activity. Dietary counseling was performed by trained dieticians on four separate occasions at 15, 20, 28 and 35 weeks gestation.
Behavioral: Lifestyle intervention during pregnancy
Energy requirements for each participants´ mother were individually estimated according to weight and level of activity during pregnancy. Women in the active intervention group were encouraged to be moderately physically active 30-60 minutes a day.Women in this group also had free full time membership in a fitness center for six months. In the fitness centers they had closed training classes with trained physiotherapists for one hour each week.
Children of obese mothers from a RCT, controls
Children born to obese mothers who were in the control arm of the randomized controlled trial LiP.
Children born to normal weight women
Children born to women with a pregestationally normal BMI and who were not part of a lifestyle intervention programme during pregnancy.
