Episode 5: Mom’s Iodine Status vs. Baby’s IQ

Proof: nutrition in pregnancy matters.

Yes, you can splurge on your cravings (last pregnancy, mine was key lime pie)! However, getting complete nutrition is also critical.

In this episode, get a summary of two recent research papers on pregnancy nutrition. These summaries were published in the Feb/Mar 2020 edition of Paleo Magazine

In one of the studies, there was an important association found between mom’s iodine status and baby’s IQ, even into elementary school. In the other article, they studied the impact of physical activity and healthy eating on pregnancy outcomes. Get the full research summaries below:
