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.
