Food and Nutrition

Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is another way in which you can actively help support the growth and development of your baby (and you!). Canada’s Food Guide and Canada’s Food Guide – First Nations, Inuit, and Métis are useful resources to inform your food choices. While they’re not specifically tailored to pregnancy, they offer guidelines, and recommended servings of food groups and highlight some traditional foods such as wild plants, seaweed, dried fish and bannock. These might also inspire you to consider what foods from your culture (or someone else’s) could be healthy options to explore and include. Check out the links to these resources to learn more about healthy food choices during late pregnancy.
