Healthy nutrition for you equals healthy nutrition for baby
“Eating for two” during pregnancy doesn’t mean you should gorge on doughnuts and chips. It means what you eat affects the health of both you and baby. Maintaining proper nutrition during pregnancy can help keep you energized through all three trimesters, and it can give your growing baby the right combination of vitamins, minerals, and proteins to develop correctly. Eating a little junk food now and then will not harm you and your baby, but you don’t want to get all of your daily calories from foods high in fat and low in nutrients.
