It's well known that a healthy diet during pregnancy is important, but now research shows dads' diets also play an important role — that is, before conception.
"A new study suggests a father's diet pre-conception affects the development of his child. Scientists say that the father's vitamin levels may be just as important to their offspring's health and development as their mother's." (Via Fox News)
The study from McGill University in Montreal says folic acid, a form of vitamin B, is especially important. Vitamin C and zinc are also essential. (Via March of Dimes)
