Pregnancy Kitchen’s Mission:
Empower parents with the knowledge and resources on diet and nutrition so as to dramatically increase the odds of a healthy pregnancy as well as a happy, healthy child.
Pregnancy Kitchen makes the science of eating healthy during pregnancy simple by providing grocery lists, meal plans and access to grocery concierge services.
Building on existing science and clinical practice, our medical doctors, nutritionists, and neuroscientists have developed specific, evidence-based recommendations on toxin-free, organic diet and nutrition that women or couples can follow to improve the odds of having a healthy and happy child free of chronic neurological health disorders.
Prior to conception your body is developing the cells, neurotransmitters, amino acids, fatty acids and enzymes to create a healthy home for your baby. What you eat pre-conception and during pregnancy greatly impacts the health of your growing baby…and can influence your child’s potential as a human being. The Neurological Health Foundation Scientific Advisory Board has created scientifically-informed meal plans and grocery lists to help you eat the most nutritious, safest food possible for your pregnancy and well being or your child.
Be sure to download NHF’s The Healthy Child Guide to empower parents to have healthier children. And don’t forget to watch our scientists interviews for even more great information and ideas that you can apply today.
If you’d like the “science scoop”, in a nutshell, here it is: The Science Behind The Healthy Child Guide.
Pregnancy Kitchen enabled me to submit my grocery order online to Whole Foods Market and then to pick up the bags of groceries with recipes included. Since I work long hours, the grocery concierge service is invaluable and has given me and my developing child access to the purest diet full of whole, organic ingredients.
I have read The Healthy Child Guide published by the NHF Scientific Advisory Board. Pregnancy Kitchen has made it both convenient and realistic to follow recommendations that will give my child an increased likelihood of health and well being.
I am so thankful for the work that Neurological Health Foundation is doing to make programs like Pregnancy Kitchen available to the general public. This has made the whole process of consuming the very best food that much easier to understand.
Statement of Scientific Policy – The Neurological Health Foundation (NHF) has developed Pregnancy Kitchen and The Healthy Child Guide to address the concerning increase in the number of children diagnosed with developmental neurological disabilities (autism, cognitive disabilities, ADHD, etc.) as well as chronic health problems and diseases (diabetes, rheumatic diseases, asthma, childhood leukemia, brain cancer, food allergies, etc.). The recommendations provided by the NHF Scientific Advisory Board in The Healthy Child Guide integrate current scientific research findings with an emphasis on behaviors that lead to better health outcomes for parents and for children. NHF recommends what is “standard of care” according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as well as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) with an emphasis on healthier choices.
