If you're pregnant, you can pass good heart health on to your child by adding some crunchy, tasty broccoli sprouts to your diet, according to new findings from an animal study published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Journal (2006, vol. 20, no. 2). To help your baby cash in on the benefits of glucoraphanin, a compound in broccoli sprouts, munch on 200 grams (about 7 ounces, the usual amount in a small package) of sprouts every other day during pregnancy. And don't substitute mature broccoli; sprouts contain up to 50 times more glucoraphanin than the adult plant.
