Nutrition in pregnancy

A healthy diet is especially vital during pregnancy to help your baby to develop and grow. It is important to eat a variety of different foods every day to get the right balance of nutrients that you and your baby need. The plate method is a great way to visually plan out your meals without measuring portions. Aim for about half of your plate to be non-starchy vegetables, one quarter to be proteins and fats and the remaining quarter to be carbohydrates.
