This recipe has important nutrients for mom and baby, including:
Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the formation of a baby’s red blood cells, as well as brain development and function. Vitamin B12 is only found in animal products like meat and eggs so it’s important to speak with your doctor about taking a B12 supplement during your pregnancy and while breastfeeding if you’re vegetarian and don’t plan to eat animal products. Good sources of vitamin B12 include lean meats, poultry, and fish, and fat-free and low-fat milk.
To eat well during pregnancy, your extra calories should come from nutritious foods that contribute to your baby’s growth and development.
During your pregnancy, you’ll probably get advice from everyone. But staying healthy depends on you – read about the many ways to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible.
Our week-by-week illustrated pregnancy calendar is a detailed guide to all the changes taking place in your baby – and in you!
