What predictions can the SneakPeek Genetic Test reveal?
As a parent, you know that meal time fuels your child for every giggle, every moment of playtime, and every new milestone. That’s why SneakPeek Traits is designed to provide unique insight into your child’s genetics so you can support your child’s growth with every meal.
- Body Mass Index – Also called BMI, Body Mass Index is a metric used to categorize the weight health of your child. Although genetics can give you a clue into your child’s genetic predisposition for BMI and weight gain, there are many factors that can impact your child’s BMI. BMI can be determined by lifestyle factors such as physical activity and diet. Understanding your child’s potential BMI based on his genetic profile can help you pave the way for healthy habits and a life of wellness.
- Vitamin Deficiency – Your little one is a growing machine, and vitamins and minerals help build every amazing inch of growth. But sometimes, a child may have a genetic predisposition for needing a little help in the nutrient department. That’s why the SneakPeek nutritional genetic testing report also includes a look into whether or not your child is likely to be deficient in 7 of the body’s most important vitamins including Vitamin B12, B6, C, A, E, folate and Vitamin D. Understanding your child’s unique nutritional needs can help you ensure your child has everything he needs for optimal health and happy growth.
- Like or Dislike of Bitter Foods – As a parent, you probably know your child’s adorable “That tasted yucky, Mom!” face better than anybody! But did you know that your child’s DNA may clue you into her sensitivity to bitter tastes a.k.a. major sources of meal time yuck-face? The culprits behind bitter tastes are natural chemicals found in foods. These chemicals are called “glucosinolates” and certain gene variants can affect your child’s ability to taste—or not taste—those bitter-tasting chemicals. Knowing your child’s level of sensitivity to bitter tastes can help you find new strategies to ensure a healthy diet and turn that “yuck!” face into a happy “yum!” face.
