EATING FOR TWO
Life changes the moment you discover you're pregnant. Suddenly, you're eating for two and your body doesn't feel like your body. You might feel nauseous, exhausted and bloated long before the little life is even the size of a pea. What you eat is critical while you're pregnant—not just for you, but for your baby.
Common concerns during pregnancy:
- Weight gain
- Swelling and bloating
Most of these demands can be addressed through nutrition, supported by lifestyle adjustments.
BIRTH AND BEYOND
Demands for good nutrition don't stop after birth. If you're breast-feeding, you will need to keep your energy reserves and be mindful of what you eat. The quality and amount of breast milk you produce is directly linked to how healthy you are and what you eat. Also consider that some foods pass through breast milk and can cause discomfort to your baby.
