Eating Healthy during pregnancy


Eating Healthy during pregnancy

The relationship between diet and health is very important. It is even more important during pregnancy since good nutrition and safe food handling play a key role in the health of both the mother and baby.

Pregnant women should choose foods and beverages that are “nutrient-dense,” or rich in nutrients. Nutrient-dense foods are packed with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, and have relatively few. Choosing a variety of foods from all five food groups (grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and meat and beans) will help to ensure that a woman gets the nutrition she and her growing baby need.
