In the abstract there is an incorrect sentence. The following should read as follows:

Decreasing levels of saturated fatty acids and energy-dense snack foods and increasing levels of fiber and polyunsaturated:saturated fat ratio were significantly associated with decreased risk of AGT, independent of gestational weight gain.

In the discussion there is an incorrect sentence. The following should read as follows:

Our finding that decreasing levels of SFA and energy-dense snack foods and increasing levels of fiber and P:S ratio were significantly associated with decreased risk of AGT could be due, in part, to differences in the measure of glucose intolerance and the differences in race/ethnicity.
