Researchers at London's Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine studied 333 children to see how well their arteries could expand or contract in response to varying blood flow.
They found the lower the child's birth weight, the poorer the response.
The hospital's Dr Peter Whincup said: "This study contains the first concrete evidence that development in the womb may be linked to heart or blood pressure complications in later life".
