Food and Nutrition

Eating a balanced diet can help your baby grow — especially during this phase when your body is changing quickly. During mid pregnancy, some people experience heartburn. Thinking of what and when to eat can minimize these discomforts. Exploring new flavours and foods can make meals more exciting and even spark conversations at the table. If you like Indian food, try recipes that include palak (spinach), daal (lentil), methi (fenugreek), matar (peas) and gobi (cauliflower) to get the vitamins and nutrients that nurture growth. Talk to your maternity provider about healthy weight gain during pregnancy. If you want to know what might be recommended for you, check out Health Canada’s Pregnancy Weight Gain Calculator.
