During pregnancy it is important for the mother to eat a balanced diet appropriate for the baby’s development. This will allow both mother and baby to receive the nutrients they need to carry a healthy and smooth pregnancy. Here we share a little information about diet during pregnancy and its importance.
Your diet should always include fruits and vegetables, either before pregnancy, during and after. These will provide you with the nutrients you need to keep you and your baby healthy.
