A healthy diet in pregnancy is not only conducive to a healthier delivery, but it is also an act of love toward our children.
Dietary quality influences all the phases of human life. Not surprisingly, an increasing body of data suggests that children’s health starts in utero and that this imprinting accompanies the children throughout life.
It is well known that the dietary patterns of parents are transmitted from one generation to another. Let us think about obesity: Is it a hereditary disease, or is it simply linked to the family tradition of a cuisine rich in fat, simple sugars, and very large servings?
What is new is the idea that dietary habits may start being conditioned in utero.
Indeed, it is appealing to think that the taste for varied, fresh food, the instinctive carving for balanced meals, which are the basis of healthy dietary habits, may be programmed earlier than previously thought. Working with an attentive pregnant mother may reduce obesity and chronic diseases in her children.
This Special Issue will welcome all papers that deal with nutrition in this magic, mysterious, and fascinating particular phase of human life that is pregnancy, as a clue for the health of the future generations.
Relevant studies will include, but not be limited to, the effect of nutrition patterns in heathy individuals, as well as the eventual consequences of nutrtional management in differnt diseases, such as coeliac disease, kidney or metabolic diseases.
