And one of the genes is present in children, just avoiding the taste of certain foods, whereas the presence of a second is the key factor of feeding problems.
Currently, the specialists intend to develop, on the basis of the above open a fundamentally new strategy of nutrition for babies. While the above findings are based on data from the study of food preferences and genetic profiles one hundred and fifty three children.
During the research, kids were divided into three groups, the first of which included children who prefer certain products, and secondly were those who showed emotional relationship to food in General, in the third got the most complex cases involving a categorical refusal to eat.

Pediatricians tend to believe that the child insufficiently well eat due to the wrong behavior of parents, which feed it. However, if you believe the experts-geneticists, the reality can be quite different.
