Taste buds and taste preferences

According to Annie Murphy Paul babies learn about tastes whilst still in the womb. If a mother drinks, say, lots of carrot juice in her pregnancy's third trimester (baby's taste buds are shaped by the time it's about 7 months in), her baby will tend to prefer carrot juice once it's introduced to solids.



It made me smile in amusement. Because you know what this baby of mine, still in the womb, will have learned to taste then, if this research is true?

Peanut butter.
Carrots.
Cabbage/lettuce.
Beans/peas.

Low GI diet, basically.

And not much in a way of sweets, I'll tell you that.

Just a few more weeks and you can have chocolate, Maria, just a few more weeks and you can have chocolate, Maria, just a few more weeks and you can have chocolate, Maria...

PS. To people who complain that Coldplay's new album is boring - pfft! Sounds just fine to me.

Coldplay is Coldplay.
