Researchers found, among 10-year-olds they assessed, those whose mothers were in their last trimester during sunny months tended to have larger bones.
The connection is presumably explained by Vitamin D.
It's synthesized in the skin after sun exposure and plays a key role in bone health.
Scientist's say they are by no means recommending women bask in the sun. But they say it's possible that a mother's Vitamin D levels late in pregnancy have lasting effects on their children's later bone development.
