45% rate of healthy pre pregnancy weight? No way. Read down... aha, self reported weight. I knew that had to be bullshit.

Being a healthy weight for pregnancy is now officially a minority choice. And that is even deapite self-reported data. The actual numbers would give a frightening percentage of overweight mothers.

That's because good mothers don't starve their unborn babies. Baby needs at least the caloric equivalent of a whole pot roast dinner per day to be a healthy birth weight. Now that doesn't mean you have to eat a pot roast every day, this calorie goal can be met with potato chips and dip also.

prepregnancy overweight (BMI 25.0–29.9) and obesity (BMI ≥30.0) increase risks for ... childhood obesity

No, that's just a fat parent teaching their child to eat like a pig. Momma being the size of a house will have zero effect on the kids, if the kids all eat very healthy and stay incredibly active.

Children born to obeast mothers are predisposed to gaining weight more easily and having a harder time losing it. Combine that with the training the child receives in food choices, the fact that a fat will overfeed and you're pretty much guaranteed a fat kid. Babies don't put that Mt. Dew in their own bottles.
