Plan a Healthy Prenatal Diet


Let's talk food! When you find out you're pregnant, it's more important than ever to eat a healthy diet full of all the nutrients you and your growing baby need. While you're technically "eating for two" now, the average woman only needs to take in about 300 more calories a day than usual, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Keep in mind this list of foods pregnant women should avoid.If you've eaten some of these foods or consumed alcohol in the weeks before you knew you were pregnant, try not to worry too much but do pay attention to the "food rules" from now on. Weight gain guidelines depend on your initial BMI, so talk with your doctor about what is healthy for you.
