Data on 3,960 mother-child pairs showed no substantial association between prenatal 25-hydroxyvitamin D level and offspring bone mineral content at ages 9 and 10. Researchers said the study shows no strong evidence that pregnant women should take vitamin D supplements to reduce the risk of low bone mineral content but cautioned that the "results should not be interpreted as suggesting that individual 25(OH)D concentrations are not an important determinant of bone health." The study was published in The Lancet.
