Supplements, Vitamins, and Medications

When you’re pregnant, your body changes, and so might the foods you like! If you’re a vegetarian or thinking about becoming one, eating the right foods is essential to stay healthy. Our resource on vegetarian diets has tips on what foods are best for you. Choose foods with iron every day to help your body. Berries, citrus fruits, peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes have vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron. Remember, eating a mix of different foods is important for a healthy pregnancy. If you happen to be vegetarian or you enjoy diverse ethnic cuisines, there are lots of options. Check out Canada’s Food Guide for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis as well as our list of pre-pregnancy resources for more information.
