Thinking about having a baby in the near future? Research suggests there’s a link between what we eat and how hard it might be to get pregnant. Here are the items that could up your odds:

Olive oil

Women in one study who ate high levels of monounsaturated fat (comprising about 25 per cent of their daily calories) were about four times as likely to give birth via IVF as those who ate the least.


Having a high intake of animal protein led to a 39 per cent greater likelihood of infertility in a 2008 Harvard study. The solution is simple: Swap your steak for plant-based proteins, such as soy, beans, and nuts, as much as possible.

Brown rice

High glycemic-index foods (think breakfast cereals, white rice, and potatoes) are associated with a larger risk of infertility, while low glycemic-index foods (like brown rice, pasta, and dark bread) lower your risk, according to a 2009 Harvard study.

Ice cream

Women who consume at least one daily serving of whole milk are more than 50 per cent less likely to experience infertility than women who consume fewer than one serving of whole milk per week, according to a 2007 Harvard study. Finally, an excuse to indulge! (Just limit yourself to one serving—too much saturated and trans fat in one’s diet is also linked to infertility. Source
