Healthy eating and the importance of healthy diet

During pregnancy, women need sufficient energy and nutrients for the baby to grow and develop, and for their own bodies to adjust to the changes taking place and prepare for birth and breastfeeding. Eating a healthy well balanced diet is important but going on a diet or attempting to lose weight during pregnancy is not recommended. Women should be signposted to NHS Choices website for recommendations on foods to avoid while pregnant.
