Maternal nutrition during pregnancy can influence baby's lifelong health

Every mother wants to give her baby the best start in life.

As you’re waiting to bring your little one into the world, learn to eat a balanced diet. By planning your nutrition carefully, you can make sure you and your baby get the essential nutrients needed for well-being now and in the future. 

Simple lifestyle adjustments and proper nutritional choices may help women maintain a healthy weight before pregnancy, and gain appropriate amounts of weight during pregnancy: 

  • Eat frequent, small meals and follow  Canada's Food Guide. They’ll give you energy all day. 

  • To meet your extra energy needs, include an extra snack or add more food to your meal (for example, a fruit and yogurt for a snack). 

  • Be active – from regular daily walks to swimming - Be sure to talk to your doctor before increasing your activity level.
