Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article: Fostering Healthy Nutrition From As Early As in the Womb

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, shares her thoughts given a new study that shows early exposure to salt and salty foods in infants tends to create a disposition to salt cravings.

NEW YORK, NY – January 16, 2012Dr. Veronica Anderson, Social Media Medicine Expert and Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website, in which she discusses new research pointing to salt cravings beginning early from age 6 months onwards.  The article, titled “Fostering Healthy Nutrition From As Early As in the Womb” mentions how researchers arrived to their conclusion.  The article also touches upon mothers having an opportunity to shape their children’s nutritional future.

Dr. Anderson writes, “There are a lot of things that have been said and many age-old adages exist that hold true to this day.  Despite tons of research and changing news and views on many areas of our lives based on new findings, some things never change.  Healthy eating and strong nutritional habits is one of those things.  No matter how we cut it, diets that are low in fat and cholesterol, incorporate a significant amount of leafy greens, fruits and other vegetables plus lean meats – remain the best and most balanced nutrition possible.  So it’s no surprise that researchers report that salt cravings begin at very early ages and stages.”

“…If babies can perceive the tastes they like or dislike as early as 2 months old, shaping how they develop just a few short months later – why can’t we go one step further back and prevent this disposition to unhealthy salty foods before they are even born?  It is a known fact that while in utero the foods that mother eats are passed on to babies.  Whether that means that they can taste it or if they just develop a natural inclination to the mother’s choices is not the point.  The idea that prior to birth babies can and do develop tastes to certain foods means that it is all-important for the mother to watch what she eats during pregnancy,” says Dr. Anderson.
