Vitamin D linked to baby birth weight

Low vitamin D intake during pregnancy is associated with lower birth weights in babies, according to a study.

The research compared babies' birth weights with the amount of vitamin D fortified milk and vitamin D supplements women took while pregnant.

The researchers from McGill University, Canada, suggest the study shows vitamin D may be an important regulator for foetal growth.

The study is published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
