Trisomy 21 & Choline in Pregnancy

Interesting article - please ignore the references to "normal" babies.  


  1. Fascinating article for all expectant moms, thanks Laura. The article talks about the foods that contain choline but one should note that egg yolks contain so much more than any other food.
    "Eggs contain an abundance of choline (primarily in the yolk), which is a key nutrient for boosting brain function, as well as reducing fatty liver deposits. Eggs are a great source of protein, selenium, and vitamin A, an important nutrient for good vision. Contrary to popular belief, eating eggs does not contribute to heart disease! For the sake of happy chickens and healthy eggs, choose local, free-run eggs from a reputable farm." Spartan Race Food of the Day today!
    I hope your oldest has enveloped them recently as I think about her eye health.

    Thanks again Laura. An informative blogpost as always.
