Brief description I test whether different diets and nutritional supplements improve the health of pregnant women and their children. My new research will evaluate how changing the balance of the fats in the diet of pregnant women may reduce the risk of having a premature baby, consider new ways that we can improve the growth and development of premature babies and how eating extra eggs and peanuts in pregnancy and while breastfeeding might actually reduce allergies to these foods in babies.
