(NEW YORK) -- If you are what you eat, an expectant mother's diet can also have a profound effect on her child.
However, a study published in the journal Nature Communications goes even further by urging women of child-bearing age to begin eating healthy before they conceive and after they know they are pregnant.
Experts say that nutrition during conception is crucial to the healthy development of a baby's brain.
Among the food choices women should make are those rich in B-vitamins and folic acids, which include green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, breads, pasta and rice.
Doctors also recommend that women either pregnant or trying to get pregnant should take folic acid supplements as well.
