Reasons and solutions for picky eaters in children

I wonder if you have ever wondered about this question: If a mother likes to eat during pregnancy, will the child also like to eat it after birth? I especially liked eating pineapple during pregnancy. I usually find it sour, but I especially loved it when I was pregnant with my daughter. As a result, I now discovered that my daughter also likes eating pineapple. Even when choosing soda and gummy candies in the supermarket, she will choose pineapple flavor. I accidentally asked her why she likes the taste of pineapple so much, and her daughter replied: \”Because I have tasted the taste of pineapple in my mother\’s belly~\” Although it is childlike, I also want to break the casserole and ask the truth, and do some research, mom Will the taste during pregnancy affect the child? What if we love eating durian and snail noodles during pregnancy, and our children also fall in love with it? In this issue, let’s find out from a scientific perspective. Can the fetus \”taste\” in the mother\’s belly? I have long been curious about this issue. If you eat snail noodles during pregnancy, will your baby taste it in the belly? If you eat chili pepper, will it be spicy to your fetus? If a pregnant mother drinks alcohol and coffee, will the child get drunk as well? When I was pregnant, if I ate hot pot, spicy hotpot, snail noodles, etc., Dad Dandan would always say something like: \”You eat these every day. What if your child doesn\’t like to eat them and it will make you upset?\” What can I do?\” I always respond to him: \”No, it\’s just because the baby likes to eat and he wants to eat, so I reluctantly eat it.\” Haha, although the matter of the fetus \”tasting\” seems outrageous (it\’s also true for me) (I am just talking nonsense), but it can be explained from a scientific perspective. If we want to know whether the fetus can \”taste\” flavors, we must first understand when the fetus\’s taste system was formed. Human taste receptors begin to develop when the embryo is 3 months old and are formed around 6 months old. So generally speaking, the baby\’s taste system has begun to form as early as the mother\’s early pregnancy. But starting to develop does not mean that you can taste the delicious food for the first time. If you want to taste it, you have to wait until the mother is about 16-17 weeks pregnant. Only when the fetus\’s taste system gradually matures can it taste the taste of food. But when the baby is in the mother\’s belly and cannot directly come into contact with food, how does it taste it? This brings us to the magical connection between mother and child. What should children eat to grow taller? How to make recipes for children to grow taller? There are two main channels for children aged 3-14 to absorb maternal nutrition: one is the placenta; the other is amniotic fluid. Among them, amniotic fluid is the key way for children to \”taste\” food. We all know that when the baby is in the mother\’s belly, he is placed in the amniotic cavity filled with amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid not only protects both mother and baby, but also allows the baby to taste the food eaten by the mother during the child\’s absorption and swallowing process. Generally speaking, when the mother is 10 weeks pregnant, the baby has begun to learn to swallow amniotic fluid and needs to drink at least 500ml a day. Whether the mother eats something sweet, spicy or salty, the child can taste the taste and even express his reaction to the taste. Therefore, mothers must not think that whether food tastes good or not is their own business. because, the baby in your belly will also express his taste preferences. Will the food you like during pregnancy also like after birth? In 2001, Dr. Menela from the University of Pennsylvania in the United States conducted an interesting experiment. In order to verify whether the mother\’s taste during pregnancy would affect the child\’s taste preference after birth, he found 46 pregnant women with a pregnancy period of 27-40 weeks and divided them into three groups. The first group of pregnant mothers insisted on drinking a certain amount of carrot juice every day during pregnancy and stopped after giving birth; the second group of pregnant mothers drank water during pregnancy and began to drink a certain amount of carrot juice during lactation; the third group of pregnant mothers continued to drink water. The experimental results found that the babies in the first and second groups were more interested in foods containing carrot juice, while the babies in the third group were less interested in foods containing carrot juice. From this point of view, the mother\’s food preferences during pregnancy can largely affect the child\’s taste preferences after birth. This can also explain why my daughter especially likes to eat pineapple-flavored food. What’s more interesting is that not only the mother’s food preferences can affect the fetus, but the fetus also has its own preferences and reactions to food. Let’s take the two examples of eating bitterness and eating sweetness. Generally speaking, fetuses like sweet things, such as cakes, candies, ice cream, etc. When a mother eats sweets, not only will she feel happy, the baby in her belly will also swallow amniotic fluid more frequently, and fetal movements will become more frequent. Scientists also observed the reaction of fetuses when they tasted bitter tastes, and found that babies would use small movements of sticking out their tongues to express their dislike of bitter tastes. Pregnant mothers can change different foods at home to observe the baby\’s reaction in the belly. I believe you will have miraculous gains~ Will a mother’s diet during pregnancy have an impact on her child’s health? Diet during pregnancy is something that many people attach great importance to. They are not allowed to eat spicy food, cold food, or raw or cold foods. When my best friend was pregnant, she couldn\’t help but want to eat ice cream. Because she was worried about her body getting cold, all the family members accompanied her to \”ban ice cream\”. As a result, one time, her husband suddenly came home early. As soon as he entered the door, he saw her holding a large bucket of ice cream, eating most of the bucket, and then scolded her. My best friend said aggrievedly: \”I don\’t believe that if I eat such a small amount, it will be absorbed by the child. I will be responsible for the child if it spoils it!\” Although it is understandable that greedy food during pregnancy is unbearable, we also need to learn to be moderate. Just exercise restraint and satisfy your craving for a little bit, instead of hiding secretly and eating as much as you want like my best friend. Because during pregnancy, all the food the mother eats and drinks will be absorbed by the fetus without exception. Don\’t take chances with your temporary greed, and beware of these hazards: Mothers, always remember that you are eating for two people. If the mother is sick and unwell during pregnancy, the child will also feel uncomfortable. Therefore, regarding diet, we must learn to exercise restraint, plan well, and arrange it scientifically and rationally. We must not only maintain healthy and light eating habits, but also reasonably and appropriately supplement protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. enable pregnant mothers themselves toProvide the child with sufficient energy and nutrients so that the baby can grow and develop healthily in the mother\’s belly. Finally, Doudehui secretly tells everyone: During pregnancy, if the mother is not picky about food, she can also largely avoid the child\’s picky eating habits after birth. Mothers who eat more fruits and vegetables can also affect how much their children like them after birth. At the same time, if each of the four flavors of sour, sweet, bitter, and spicy can be taken in appropriately, the child\’s taste bud development can also be well stimulated, which will be more conducive to the child\’s development and growth.
