U.S. researchers conducted another study and found that the content in the diet of pregnant excessive amounts of sweet and fatty, salty and fried foods contributes to the formation of unhealthy appetite in children, according to Science Daily. "Appetite baby will be his real drug, since the absence of blocking opioid signaling pathway will initiate the production of dopamine, causing life-dependence" - experts explain.
