Children whose mothers drank about two cups of coffee a day when they were pregnant were shorter than kids whose moms didn’t drink coffee during pregnancy. 
The findings were published Monday in JAMA Network Open. Researchers studied 2,400 children between the ages of four and eight and said that they believe coffee can impact children until they are eight years old. 
The researchers said that, given that roughly eight in 10 U.S. pregnant women consume caffeine, it is important to determine whether in utero caffeine exposure has long-term growth implications in offspring. The scientists concluded further research is needed to see if these height gaps continue into adulthood.
