Today we’re going to be talking about eating for two during your pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a time of rapid growth and development for a woman, and a lot of times we think we can eat twice as much food or go non-stop at the buffets or with ice cream or sweets. That’s not always the case. The average woman only needs about an additional 300 to 500 calories per day, depending on where she’s at her pregnancy. It’s best if those extra 300 to 500 calories to come from nutrient dense foods. Think fruits, vegetables, whole grains, high-fiber cereals, all those are great options!

A helpful tip for increasing calories would be to add snacks throughout your day. An apple with peanut butter, or cheese and crackers for a bit of energy in between your meals. If you’re having pregnancy cravings, say ice cream or sweets, it’s okay to keep those portions small, but make it the occasional treat instead of something that happens all the time. Most importantly, maintain a well-balanced diet so you get a variety of vitamins and minerals through food. If you’re going to make any changes or have questions please consult your physician first.
