The relationship between maternal and child body mass index (BMI) - project description

Published Updated

The background for the project is to understand what lies behind the association between the mother's BMI and the child's BMI.


Summary

The background for the project is to understand what lies behind the association between the mother's BMI and the child's BMI.

Abstract:

The background for this project is to understand what lies behind the association between the mother's BMI and the child's BMI. The positive association may be due to environmental factors associated with maternal BMI or it may be due to biological inheritance, i.e. that half of the child's genes come from the mother, and that the genes are important for BMI. Better knowledge of this is vital for the importance that can be attached to reducing BMI in women before pregnancy.
