PREGNANCY DIET & NUTRITION

We all know that we are what we eat. In case of pregnant women the situation changes a bit because their baby is also what you eat.

It is a known fact that there are books written on pregnancy diet and basically they all say the same thing: that you must have a healthy and balanced diet. When thinking about pregnancy nutrition the mothers have to consider all the vitamins and nutrients that the babies need for a healthy growth and development and they should offer them to the little one. A lot of people say regarding eating during pregnancy that women are eating for two, but this isn’t entirely true.

The right pregnancy diet means that women have to have some extra calories, but there is no reason for them to double their food intake. In fact, at the early stages there is no need for extra calories at all. If you are asking what to eat while pregnant, you should consider everything that is healthy, like fruits, vegetables, fish and so on. On the other hand, when asking what not to eat while pregnant, try not to have foods that aren’t considered to be healthy or that could contain dangerous substances for the baby.
