This review addresses current evidence available for assessing the potential programming of long-term metabolic health of offspring by maternal vitamin D status in pregnancy. It summarises knowledge on the early origins of metabolic health and analyses evidence for an association between the vitamin D status in pregnancy and maternal and fetal health status. In addition, it analyses the link between the regulation of flammation and the vitamin D status in the general population to inform on the general mechanisms through which early vitamin D might affect the programming of long-term health.
