Planning for a pregnancy? Here are some things to think about with your diet.

  • Start taking a prenatal supplement that contains folic acid.
  • Take care with your alcohol intake – no alcohol is recommended while you are pregnant.
  • Think about your eating habits. Base your diet around wholegrain breads and cereals, fruits and vegetables and good quality protein.
  • Aim for a healthy weight for pregnancy – a small weight loss can make a difference for women who are overweight.
