Eat Healthy - During Pregnancy

With the great success of Eat Healthy- Fight Diabetes Event, (Don't forget to check out the Part 1 and Part 2 of the round up) I am so happy to announce this month's topic. It is eating healthy during pregnancy. It is important to eat healthy. But it is even more important to eat healthy when you are eating for two. Pregnancy is an experience. Most of us get lost in the excitement and eat a lot, which is more junk than healthy and gain weight!

Gaining weight is important during pregnancy. But, when beyond the limit, invites complications. Eating right is what we are talking about. We require few vitamins more than the others. Like more of calcium and less of carbohydrates. More proteins and fiber. More of Iron. Eating what we need is what we are looking at. I don't want to bore you with facts. You know what I am talking about and I am waiting to see the healthy recipes.

Here is a video that I found which talks about what and what not to eat during pregnancy.

There are numerous to-be moms and people who are trying to conceive who has less knowledge in this topic. Here is a way to help them out.
