Are eggs, meat and nuts healthy for expectant mothers?

Researchers from the University of North Carolina say that choline, the B-complex vitamin found in eggs, meats and nuts, helps in an unborn baby’s brain development. The part of the brain that greatly benefits from this nutrient is the area associated with memory.

In their study, they discovered that a choline-rich diet brought about a significant change in the genes that affects a baby’s brain development. Experts say that women should take in at least 425 mg of choline a day.

So pregnant moms, start incorporating eggs, meats and nuts into your diet to ensure that your unborn baby achieves optimal brain development.
