The Center for Nutritional Psychology is consolidating research from around the world to help us better understand the relationship between maternal dietary intake and both maternal and infant/child mood, behavior, and mental health. Explore the studies in our DMMH Research Library below and see what the research says about pregnancy and cravings, the relationship between post-partum mental health and diet, and much more. The DMMH Research Library is curated by CNP Content Developer Stephanie Greunke, MS, RD, CPT, PMH-C.
Areas of future development for this library will include the implications of nutritional protocols, micronutrients, non-pharmacological therapies, blood sugar regulation, immune system regulation, gut health, and the gut-brain axis.
