I found the food lecture to be very interesting. Especially, how woman eating habits during their pregnancy not only nourishes their baby in the womb, but may have a huge impact on their child food preferences later on in life. I did some further research on the topic and learn how still in the womb, the baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid daily. This fluid surrounding the baby is actually flavored by all the food and beverages the mother has eaten in the last few hours. Studies had shown that flavors like vanilla, garlic, anise, mint and carrots have been shown to be transmitted to the amniotic fluid and even the mother's breast milk. This increases the chances of your baby enjoying these flavors and food later on in life.
