So you think you know why you crave chocolate? Or sushi? Or pineapple? Well a new study had found that what a woman eats during her pregnancy shapes the baby's food preferences later in life. A baby is surrounded and nourished on the amniotic fluid, which is filled with the flavors of what the mom has eaten. The babies are feasting on the flavored amniotic fluid, forming memories of these flavors even before birth. These memories result in preferences for these foods for a lifetime.
