Kourtney Kardashian said that she’s eating daily quail eggs for “baby-making” as she tries to have a child with now-husband Travis Barker.
On episode nine of “The Kardashians,” Kardashian has lunch with her friend Steph Shepherd, eating a salad and several quail eggs. While eating, she tells Shepherd that she has to “eat quail eggs every day,” but wasn’t sure why they were more beneficial than chicken eggs.
“Quail eggs supposedly are useful when trying to have a baby, but I’m not sure if that’s like, documented online. I haven’t looked it up,” Kardashian said in a confessional.
“Quail egg sales are gonna go wild because of that interview byte,” an off-screen producer responds.
There isn’t strong evidence quail eggs have fertility-enhancing abilities, though they do contain the fertility-boosting nutrients choline and folate and other B vitamins, Tamsin Jordan, a registered dietitian specializing in women’s health, told the Insider magazine.
There’s limited research on fertility-boosting foods, she said, but some research shows women who eat high-fiber and unrefined carbohydrates, including brown rice, whole oats, quinoa, and whole fruits and vegetables, have an easier time getting pregnant than women who don’t.
