Our expert says:
Congratulations on your pregnancy. If you click on 'Diet&Food' at the top of this page and then on 'Eating Throughout life' and you can read the articles on 'Pregnancy', which should help. You can also consult a consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area) for a pregnancy diet that will help you not gain excess weight during your pregnancy but will still ensure that you and your baby obtain all the nutrients you require for good health (i.e. calcium, iron, protein, zinc, omega fatty acids, etc).
Wishing you all the best with your pregnancy.
