Maternal nutrition during pregnancy can influence baby’s health

1 min to read Apr 1, 2021



The right nutrition before and during pregnancy can increase the likelihood of an infant achieving a normal weight at birth, and later in life.


Simple lifestyle adjustments and proper nutritional choices can help women obtain healthy weights before pregnancy, and gain appropriate amounts of weight during pregnancy to help prevent high birth weight in newborns:


  • Increase daily consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Eat less refined carbohydrates (sugar) and saturated fats (e.g. pizza or chips)
  • Be more active – from regular daily walks to yoga or gymnastics
