Bad Eating Habits Start in the Womb -

THE solution to one of America's most vexing problems - our soaring rates of obesity and diet-related diseases - may have its roots in early childhood, and even in utero. Researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center, a nonprofit research organization in Philadelphia, have found that babies born to mothers who eat a diverse and varied diet while pregnant and breast-feeding are more open to a wide range of flavors.


This goes to show why it's so important for expecting mothers to eat well and get all the necessary nutrients during their pregnancy. Just because you're "eating for two" doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want. 12-03-2013 6:18pm
