How to eat well when pregnant
Eating well and keeping your body in good shape when you are pregnant is one of the most important things you can do for your baby. Remember that whilst you are pregnant everything that goes into your baby comes from you, so you are essentially feeding your child directly when you eat anything. This is why you should avoid alcohol when pregnant, and think carefully about your diet to eat the best things for both yourself and your child.
- Don’t think you have to eat for two. Your baby isn’t taking extra food from you, it is simply taking the nutrients from what you eat in order to grow. The bigger you get the less exercise you will be doing, so be careful not to overeat.
- Get lots of vitamin D. Vitamin D is great for your unborn child, helping it to develop strong bones. You should be aiming for at least four portions of dairy products or other calcium-rich foods each day, and don’t be afraid to take a calcium supplement as well to increase your vitamin D intake.
- Take folic acid. You can choose to eat foods rich in folic acid in order to keep your baby healthy or take a folic acid supplement. Folic acid reduces the chance of your baby developing certain defects, and will protect it throughout your pregnancy.
- Avoid alcohol and junk food. As mentioned previously, your baby is taking nutrients from everything that goes into your body, including things which you know are bad for you. Use this time to detox your body from junk food and alcohol. It will be good for your baby and good for you as well, perhaps even making you feel a little healthier in the long run.
