Fetal sense of taste development during pregnancy

Food tastes are an early discovery, which even goes back to life in the mother's womb. It was highlighted by a team of experts during the Round Table "Food in the First 1000 Days of Life". The event was held in Naples during the congress of the Italian Society of Pediatrics.

According to pediatricians, the baby's relationship with food begins even before giving birth. It is important for the future mom to control pregnancy. The passage of nutrients through the placenta affects not only the baby's development, but also its taste. Unhealthy eating can have negative consequences both physically and in the face of future eating habits. During pregnancy it is advisable to undergo prenatal screening tests, such as fetal DNA test. These examinations calculate the probability percentage for which the fetus may be affected by chromosomal abnormalities.

After breastfeeding, it is advisable to choose breastfeeding wherever possible. Breastfeeding should go as far as possible, even up to the year of life. Breastfeeding is in fact essential for proper physical and psychological development. If the mother is unable to breastfeed, it is good to make sure the baby is taking omega3.

At the time of weaning any tastes already present in the child emerge. The best way to guide them to a healthy, balanced diet is to contact your pediatrician. He will be able to advise the foods to be introduced, in the right manner and time.
