Organic Food During Pregnancy

A recent study sought answers to questions such as:  Who eats organic food when they are pregnant? What kind of organic foods are most popular? The study included nearly 65,000 women in Norway, and asked questions about six different food groups.

The results showed that organic food is widely used among pregnant women in Norway across different groups.

According to Science Daily:

“Almost one in ten pregnant women consumes organic food regularly, and organic eggs and vegetables were most often selected ... [T]he women who did had the following characteristics ... Most were either under 25 or over 40 years old.  There were many with low family incomes ... Many were students or had a partner who was a student.  They had normal or low weight ... They exercised frequently -- at least 3 times a week”.
