    And all those "averages" - 'coz there is only one way babies are supposed to be, right?

    I would say 100g is negligible (in a full term baby anyway).
    i ate heaps of hot chips, had to be fish and chip shop covered in vinegar. Actually I think I could have just drank the vinegar! My son was born absolutely 50th percentile.

    I think that's a silly study. If u eat a lot of foods like hot chips you could also gain a lot of weight and risk getting pregnancy diabetes which can cause bigger babies! So the opposite!

    Some times you have to be sensible when reading bout all these studies. A few serves of hot chips here and there isn't going to affect your baby's birth weight.

    Could go the other way, I lived on hot chips yet dropped over 12kg courtesy of HG... the day I gave birth at 42 weeks I was 12kg less than when I fell pregnant.

    Now I want a chocolate milkshake! And DP doesn't know where to go to get me one... I've already had chicken treat chips so that is all I'm missing... With lots of chocolate ice cream too... Lol
