Deborah Good, an author of the paper said that everyone likes variety, but when there is a choice, humans are tending to eat more than when there is no variety, and leads to overeating.

George Davis, a professor said that their study shows that environmental factors are just as important as a mother's diet when it comes to obesity.

The team of researchers mentioned that if low-fat foods are more readily available, or priced competitively with high-fat and unhealthy foods, even babies born to overweight mothers could counter their prenatal environment and avoid being overweight themselves.

The research is published in the journal Endocrinology.
