Health Tip: Nutrition During Pregnancy

Foods to enjoy

(HealthDayNews) -- Good nutrition during pregnancy is vital for you and your unborn child, according to the U.S National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases.

Here are some eating tips:

  • Eat breakfast every day. If you wake up feeling nauseous, snack on a piece of whole wheat toast or whole grain cracker before eating the rest of your breakfast.
  • Eat high-fiber foods and drink plenty of water. This can help prevent the constipation that many women have during pregnancy.
  • Keep healthy foods, such as fresh fruit and nuts, on hand.
  • If you have heartburn, eat small meals more often, and avoid spicy and fatty foods. Also, drink between meals instead of with meals, and don't lie down right after eating.
