When a mother eats certain foods during pregnancy, the child may learn to like these these foods.

Examples cited in the short video included anise and carrots.

It makes sense! Although I suspect that what a woman eats while breastfeeding probably has a bigger impact on the baby's eventual diet.

My husbands niece is 7 months pregnant and just told me her baby gets extremely active every time she eats an orange. I politely said he probably cannot take all the acid so try to eat more alkaline fruits. I think she is an A and don't know what type Dad is but no matter I just wanted her to stop eating oranges! ;)
Her Mom and Dad have been sort of receptive to ER4YT and hopefully she will learn, too.

interesting... yes I think it is so.. we are so smart when born.. maybe we hear what is going on in moms life,  like ugly things have certain types of results.. happy things have other results.. hormonal influencing the child's life for the rest of his or her life.. yes indeed..
