|What a mother eats can affect the taste of her breastmilk - and could make her child more receptive to different foods when older, scientists have discovered.
Various flavours were tried in the experiment, with the taste of bananas being noticeable in the milk within an hour, while foods like liquorice take longer, New Scientist reported.
Test results from the research at the University of Copenhagen showed that breastfed children were more likely to try new foods because they had already been exposed to a lot of different flavours.
