Eating For Two? What to eat during pregnancy (Infographic)

Are you really eating for two? How the food you eat affects you and your baby.

by Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2


Staying healthy while we are pregnant makes logical sense, and your diet during these nine months can matter more than you may think. Here's what you need to know.


When I was pregnant I did have food craving. Not pickles and ice cream so much, but chocolate? Umm, yeah. And chocolate ice cream probably was on the list, come to think of it.

But while it's perfectly normal (and necessary) to gain weight when we are pregnant, that number is not unlimited. And we all know how hard it can be to get it back off, and any extra isn't going to make that any easier!

Print out this simple guide to help you create your optimal pregnancy nutrition plan. You'll get insight on how much to eat, the kinds of food that will keep you and your baby healthy, and some things to avoid during your pregnancy. I'll be honest, with my first couple I didn't pay as much attention as I should have, probably because I didn't know what I didn't know. This is better.
