Amanda's Top Tips for healthy eating in pregnancy...

In pregnancy, we only require slightly more kilojoules (calories) than when we are not pregnant.

Our Challenge is - How can you eat even when you feel sick?

It is the quality of your diet that matters most.

Some important nutrients in pregnancy include:

  • Water
  • Fibre
  • Folate – before and during pregnancy
  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin B6, C, D
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Iodine

We find these in Healthy Whole Foods such as

  • Fresh vegetables and fruit
  • Meat and fish
  • Wholegrains and cereals (breads/rice/pasta)
  • Dairy foods
  • Legumes and nuts

Foods to avoid:

  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Listeria
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Mercury and PCBs
