When it comes to food and pregnancy, it seems like it’s a topic enshrouded in confusion. How much should one eat? What should one eat? What should be avoided etc. Here are a few key points that I have done my due diligence on.

  • We need only an additional 300 calories per day when pregnant and 600 more when lactating.
  • Avoid raw fish, raw meat like deli meat and unpasteurized soft cheeses. Some raw soft cheese like imported brie have been linked to a fetal harming bacteria called Listeria.
  • Increase protein intake up to 65-70 grams per day.
  • Skip caffeine, refined sugar and alcohol.
  • Try to eat every two hours (always including some protein) to keep blood sugar balance.
  • And stay hydrated (2-3 liters of water a day)

When it comes to pregnancy eating think about how you will want your child to eat when he is about 3-4 years old. Plenty of fresh fruits andvegetables, protein, fiber and sure every now again a treat. Everything you eat is helping your baby grow and develop, honor your cravings but do your best to help create a strong and healthy foundation for your child. Pick up Domenica Catelli’s wonderful cook book Momalicious: Fresh, Fast, Family Food for the Hot Mama in You! You will use it for years.
