Maternal obesity is associated with altered metabolic function in the offspring, but its age and sex-specific metabolic effect not clearly defined. Female adult Sprague–Dawley (SD) rats were fed an obesogenic diet – high fat diet of 7.76 kcal/g (experimental group) or standard rat chow (3.52 kcal/g, control group) for 8 weeks prior to mating and throughout gestation and lactation.
