Diet during pregnancy
Eating healthy before conception and during pregnancy is important for you and your baby. During pregnancy, you only need to take additional 300 kcal/day. However, requirements for other nutrients (e.g. protein, folate, calcium, vitamin D and B vitamins) may be significantly higher than in the non-pregnancy state. So you need to eat smart and choose a variety of nutrient-dense foods, rather than just eating for two!
