During the next nine months, your baby will depend on the nutrients obtained from your diet. Generally, there is no reason to worry about your baby not receiving all the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and development if you eat a diversified and nutritionally balanced diet. There are, however, a few nutrients that are difficult to obtain in sufficient amounts through diet alone. Then, there are also a few foods (and drinks) that can be harmful for your baby.
In order to help you make the right dietary choices, we have decided to take a closer look at pregnancy nutrition basics. What to eat, what foods to avoid, how much caloric intake you really need (you do not really need to eat for two like you will probably hear a lot) and how much weight you should gain are only a few of many questions about pregnancy nutrition we have answered. Plus, we also included useful and easy to follow tips on nutrition before, during and after pregnancy which will help you stay healthy and provide your baby with optimal nutrition both during and after birth, of course if you will choose breastfeeding over formula.
Since morning sickness can make you feel like skipping breakfast altogether, we have also decided to ask the experts what to eat without aggravating nausea. So if morning sickness is preventing you from enjoying the most important meal of the day, you have come to the right place. We will help you prepare a tasty and nutritionally rich breakfast in no time.
