Food Preferences and The Womb

Discussion in 'Pregnancy Club' started by mom-on-8/2009, Apr 6, 2009.

  1. They say when baby has taste buds and swallows the amniotic fluid, he ends up liking what he tasted later on in life. What would that make your LO like after they are born due to this fact?

    You can change this for people with one child already born or a mom pregnant with another child to add the other LO's, just please explain.

    Aaven (possible different spelling) would love iced tea, spinach, carrots, sunflower seeds, macaroni and cheese, and french fries. I don't think water would have any bearing in this.

    I've heard this as well, that unborn babies get used to what we eat. I hope to develop a love for veggies and salad, my favorite foods, and they're healthy! And fish. And meat and more meat. Hopefully I won't crave junk or other bad foods.
     
  4. i'm not a meat fan

    I've heard this too and know several people that it is true for. Hopefully, it's not true for me because I just can't afford crab legs that often.

    I LOVE milk right now.
    And cheese,olives,onions and tuna melts :)

    Not so much red meat and hate potatoes,pasta,bread right now.

    My son has a taste for sweet things and will probably enjoy taco bell a little too much when he's older. :rofl:

    My (unborn) baby girl will probably have healthier food preferences, like yogurt, fruit, milk, and salad. That seems to be all I can get down this time around. lol.

    My mum completely disagrees with this as I have completely different food tastes to her and I don't eat half of the stuff I ate as a baby, especially bananas or milk!

    If it is true, my son is going to love chocolate, cakes, sweets, puddings (especially chocolate fudge cake), and beer. Sounds like a typical bloke to me!
