Eating well can help you have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
1. Don't forget breakfast.
-Try fortified ready-to-eat or cooked breakfast cereals with fruit. Fortified cereals have added nutrients, like calcium.
-If you are feeling sick, start with whole wheat toast. Eat more food later in the morning.
2. Eat foods with fiber.
-Choose a variety of vegetables and fruits, like carrots, cooked greens, bananas, and melon.
-Eat plenty of beans and whole grains. Try brown rice or oatmeal.
3. Choose healthy snacks.
-Low-fat or fat-free yogurt with fruit
-Whole grain crackers with fat-free or low-fat cheese
4. Take a prenatal vitamin with iron and folic acid every day.
5. Eat up to 12 ounces a week (2 average meals) of fish or shellfish.
-A 3-ounce serving is about the size of a deck of cards.
-Avoid fish and shellfish with high levels of mercury. Don't eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish.
