Boy, oh, boy! According to new research by scientists at The Royal Society, what you eat for breakfast before getting pregnant could affect the sex of your baby, and eating more bananas leads to the birth of a baby boy!
The study, which looked at 740 women who were pregnant with their first child found that eating more potassium and having a more nutritious pre-pregnancy diet led to the birth of a baby boy.
The study also showed that women who ate more breakfast cereals before conception were more likely to be painting the nursery blue.
In fact, research leader Fiona Matthews, a specialist in mammalian biology at Exeter University told the New Scientist: ‘If you want a boy, eat a healthy diet with a high calorie intake, including breakfast. Of women eating cereals daily, 59 per cent had boys, compared with only 43 per cent who bore boys in the group eating less than a bowlful per week.’
