Eating Healthy during pregnancy

Eating healthy During Pregnancy

At the Monell Chemical Senses Centre in Philadelphia they were rebabysearching to see if what the mother ate affected the lifelong food and flavour preferences in their babies. Dr Mennella had a group made up of pregnant and nursing mothers drink carrot juice every day. Once eating food the children who were exposed to the taste of carrots through the amniotic fluid or breast milk were much keener on carrots than those whose mothers had not drunk carrot juice!

A similar study was then done on peaches and found the same result.
