In brief: Not from your diet
Your diet will not directly affect the baby's choice of food.
It does not work that way. However, when the child is older, your family's eating habits will train the child to like the foods that you like. So, eat whatever you want now without worry. New data does suggest that mothers can affect baby weight and possibility of obesity. A healthy diet is always best. Good luck.
