Here’s a video from ABC about new research from the Monell Chemical Senses Center, showing that what you eat while you’re pregnant will influence your baby’s food preferences later in life.
The researchers speculate that amniotic fluid in the womb becomes infused with the flavors of what you’ve eaten. Julie Mennella, the research who conducted the study, specifically called out vanilla, carrot, garlic, anise, and mint as being memorable to babies, in an interview with National Public Radio.
