    Women who consumed artificially-sweetened beverages daily during pregnancy were 2.2 times more likely to have an overweight baby when the baby reached one-year compared to women who consumed no artificially sweetened beverages.

    “These effects were not explained by maternal [body mass index], diet quality, total energy intake, or other obesity risk factors,” the authors of the study note.

    They also noted that, “There were no comparable associations for sugar-sweetened beverages.”
