    Choline is an essential nutrient which research shows is particularly important in pregnancy. In this research, 100 pregnant women will have their Choline levels measured, and then throughout their pregnancy keep track of their daily intake of foods known to be rich in Choline. Their Choline levels will be tested again at the end of the study. Based on the change in Choline levels and the foods eaten, researchers will be able to extrapolate the value of eggs in increasing the Choline level of pregnant women.
