Making an immensely strange and shocking disclosure, a recently conducted study, which was carried out by a team of researchers from the Dijon-based University of Bourgogne, has revealed that the association of an infant’s life-long with food and possibilities of whether or not the infant is likely to mould into a fussy eaters starts in the womb.
In their findings, the researchers claimed that the association is broadly shaped the type of food consumed by babies during the course of their first few months of existence.
Newborns are said to be heavily influenced by the flavor of food items, as a separate research conducted in this regard has shown that the larger the diversity of tastes they get to familiarize with during the first six months of life, the more elevated the chances are that they will not throw out new varieties of food during the later stages of their life.
While expressing his opinion regarding the strange association between various aspects calling the short behind food preferences of babies starting from their first six months of being to the later stages of life, the lead author of the study from the University of Bourgogne, Benoist Schaal, said: “During pregnancy women are relatively permeable to their environment and what the mother takes in also, in a certain dose, goes to the foetus during a period when the brain is being formed, probably with long-term consequences”.
Scientists further revealed about their findings that the human foetus is very well capable of to detecting slight flavors of the food consumed by a woman during her pregnancy by merely taking an aroma of the amniotic fluid that dips them. In addition, it has been found that women who experience vomiting and nausea during their expecting days are more expected to deliver babies having a strong fondness for salty flavors.
