How to influence the taste and wellbeing of my child?

You are a woman and you expect a child. To some extent you already know which foods and drinks are (not) good for your baby; you probably will say no to alcoholic beverages and steak tartare for 9 months. But did you know that your diet during pregnancy also affects the eating behaviour of your child? "So when I eat Brussels sprouts when I’m pregnant, my children will be cheering when I serve them these later?" This may seem exaggerated, but research shows that taste is indeed already developing in the womb! The nutrients your child gets as a toddler also deserves attention: how can food prevent childhood diseases and health problems in adulthood? Why should you pay attention to the intake of macronutrients and micronutrients and what are they exactly? Koen Joosten will give you new insights in the field of nutrition for 0 to 4 year olds!
