Research about a child's taste preference

Posted: Updated:

What you eat during pregnancy might influence your child's taste buds later in life.  Researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia have been studying how we develop our taste preferences. They say they've found that pregnant women can give their unborn children a taste for certain flavors -like carrots, mint and vanilla- based on what they eat during those nine months. This could explain why children in some countries favor spicier foods that many kids in America dislike.
