Maternal weight gain of rats during pre-feeding 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 and no significant differences were found between groups
