Taste for Healthful Foods Starts in Womb

Mothers can give their kids a leg up on health
from the womb to the tomb by giving them a taste
for nutritious alkaline but kid-hated foods like
spinach and broccoli before they are even born!
The only thing moms have to do is eat such alkaline
foods themselves during pregnancy, or barring that,
eat them while breast-feeding, according to the
Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia.

“Flavors from the mother’s diet are transmitted
through amniotic fluid and mother’s milk,” said
Julie Mennella, a researcher at the Monell center.
“A baby learns to like a food’s taste when the
mother eats that food on a regular basis.”

Experiments showed, for instance, that when pregnant
women drank carrot juice, their babies liked carrots
better than the babies of mothers who had not. In
another test, babies who were still breast-feeding
but also eating solids at first rejected green beans
until their mothers began eating them and transmitting
the flavor of the beans in their milk.

“Babies are born with a dislike for bitter tastes,”
said Menella. “If mothers want their babies to
learn to like to eat vegetables, especially green
vegetables, they need to provide them with
opportunities to taste these foods.”

Dr. Robert O. Young of the pH Miracle Living
Center suggest, “drinking fresh vegetable juice
or green drinks everyday while pregnant or
while nursing will build healthy blood for
the Mother and the unborn or nursing baby.”

“When the Mothers blood is healthy then the
baby’s blood will be healthy and healthy
blood means a healthy and strong baby.”

Dr. Young states, “a pregnant or nursing mom
should be drinking at least 3 to 4 liters of
fresh green vegetable juice or powdered alkaline
green drink every day to secure her health and
the health and strength of her baby. There is
no better way!”
