Brussels Sprouts Linked to Fertility? Ask William and Kate

Brussels sprout

Could one of these claim responsbility for aiding in the production of the future heir to the British throne?

I’ve heard oysters can get you in an amorous mood, but now comes word that Brussels sprouts can help the love go from the abstract to the more permanent: babies.

Vanity Fair is reporting that Prince William called ahead to his honeymoon destination and requested their private villa be stocked with Brussels sprouts, which contain folic acid and can aid in the conception of a royal heir, er, child.

They newlyweds also requested cream cheese, but there’s no word on whether that was for bagels or to spread all over each other (hey, it was their honeymoon).

Ever since the royal couple got married in an intimate ceremony for a few billion people in April, there has been rampant speculation as to how soon they will produce a great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth.

There’s no doubt if their first child pops out in about eight months with cabbage-like, sales of Brussels sprouts will soar through the roof.

Are there any foods you’ve heard of that are said to boost fertility?
