Chips, crisps for mum linked to baby problems
Eating chips during pregnancy can lead to significant health problems for newborn babies, research suggests.
Consuming a vast quantity of chips, crisps and biscuits during pregnancy can lead to babies having a lower-than-average birth weight, the study found.
Mothers-to-be who have a high intake of acrylamide -- which is found in commonly consumed foods and coffee -- are also more likely to have a baby which has a smaller head circumference.
The size of a child's head has been associated with delayed neurodevelopment, while lower birth weights have been associated with adverse health effects as children grow up.
