London: If your kindergartener is hyperactive and can`t settle, don`t assume drinking coffee during pregnancy is to blame, a new study suggests.The research of more than 3,400 five and six-year-olds has found no evidence that the children`s behavioral problems were related to their mothers` caffeine intake during pregnancy.According to study author Eva Loomans, from Tilburg University in the Netherlands, youngsters whose mothers drank around three cups of coffee a day had not greater risk of suffering from inattention than those who had none.However, she added that this didn`t mean that caffeine might not be harmful, as the study did not focus at any other developmental issues besides problem behaviour.
