Nutritional needs during pregnancy
By Nicole Darnell
For dinner, choose a protein, such as beef, lamb, chicken or seafood and pair with at least two vegetables, such as carrots or peas, and butter or coconut oil. You could also substitute the vegetables for a healthy salad; serve with a glass of milk.
During pregnancy, you need about three hundred extra calories than what you normally consume.
Foods to avoid: Swordfish, unpasteurized foods, raw shellfish, unwashed fruits and vegetables, shark, excess caffeine, king mackerel, alcohol, tilefish, raw fish, uncooked or overcooked seafood, meat, poultry and eggs.
