Raising a beautiful daughter with allergies to almost everything, including lettuce (I mean, who’s allergic to lettuce!) caused me to study the science and I was AMAZED by what I learned.

The aim of NHF is to provide research-based recommendations to prospective parents to reduce the incidence of chronic health conditions in infants. Our scientists, researchers, nutritionists, and physicians have donated over 1000 hours to developing neurologicalhealth.org and pregnancykitchen.org. Today we launch PregnancyKitchen.org complete with curated menu plans, grocery lists and a simplicity menu to bring science to the tables of prospective parents.
