Pregnancy is a wonderful phase in every woman's life. It is important that the mother takes good care of self and her growing baby through a healthy diet. Pregnancy is definitely not the time to go on a 'weight-loss' diet, but neither should one use this period to indulge in overeating 'junk food'. Diet during pregnancy requires special attention. For a healthy pregnancy the body needs extra nutrients not just to meet the needs of the growing baby, but also for the mother in order to store adequate resources for the lactation period.

Eating smaller meals and incorporating healthy snacks in between meals can meet the increased nutrient requirements during pregnancy. Constipation is a common problem for most women during this period, so diet during pregnancy should have high fiber content with emphasis on whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables is important.

Some women also experience 'morning sickness', so it would be a good idea to nibble on some dry food items before getting up from bed and also drinking liquids about half an hour before the meal.

Foods pregnant women should avoid to prevent nausea are greasy, oily foods and thick, creamy gravies.

Diet for a healthy pregnancy should be a well-balanced diet which will undoubtedly provide all the extra nutrients that the growing baby needs during pregnancy. It is also a good idea to incorporate light exercise (before starting on an exercise routine, always seek approval from your physician) during this period.
