Fig. 1

Maternal average daily (a) food intake, (b) energy intake and (c) protein intake before mating and up to day 20 of gestation fed on either a high LA (18% fat) diet (closed circles), high LA (36% fat) diet (open circles), low LA (18% fat) diet (closed squares) and a low LA (36% fat) diet (open squares). Values are means ± SEM and n = 5–7 per group. The effects of dietary fatty acid ratio and dietary fat content were determined using a two-way repeated measures ANOVA. * indicates a significant effect of dietary fat content (** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001)
