Every mum wants what’s best for her baby. That’s why a healthy diet is essential. Incorporating freshly made juices, nutritional breakfast cereals, salads with nuts and beans and many more organic goodies is the key to experiencing a healthy pregnancy.
But do you know what foods to avoid during pregnancy? Or how much water you should drink?
Understanding food basics is very important during pregnancy. As the body expands and gains weight, it’s nurturing a growing baby. According to the American Pregnancy Association, “… by the time you are ready to give birth, your total blood volume will have increased by as much as 60%. Your breasts will have filled with milk. Your uterus will have grown to accommodate your baby and has filled with amniotic fluid; your baby has grown to weigh 6 to 10 pounds (on average).”
In order to achieve all these changes, the body must absorb approximately 300 extra calories per day, during the second and third trimester. Every woman should discuss her individual nutrient needs with her healthcare practitioner.
