Aim to eat a healthy, balanced diet whenever you can. This means having. At least five portions of fruit and vegetables daily. Fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juice all count.
Starchy foods (carbohydrates), such as bread, pasta and rice. Carbohydrates need to make up just over a third of what you eat. Choose wholegrain varieties rather than white, so you get plenty of fiber. Daily servings of protein, such as fish, lean meat, eggs, beans, nuts or pulses.
Dairy foods, such as milk, cheese and yoghurt. Two portions of fish a week, at least one of which should be oily, such as salmon, sardines or mackerel. Fish is full of protein, vitamin D, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for the development of your baby’s nervous system. If you don't like fish, you can get omega-3 fatty acids from other foods, such as nuts, seeds, soya products and green leafy vegetables. You don’t need to eat for two when you’re pregnant. You don’t need extra calories for the first six months of pregnancy. In the last three months you’ll only need another 200 calories a day. Stay well hydrated too. The amount of water in your body increases during pregnancy to help you maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Try to have about eight glasses of fluid, such as water, fruit teas, skimmed or semi-skimmed milk or fresh fruit juice every day.
