Eating for a healthy pregnancy

Making healthy choices is especially important while you are pregnant. Eating well gives your baby the nutrients she needs to grow and develop. It also helps lower your risk of having health problems such as low iron or high blood pressure. Here are answers to some common questions about eating for a healthy pregnancy.


Food safety during pregnancy

Food safety is important to everyone, but it is especially important while you are pregnant. The hormones in pregnancy change your immune system, making it easier for you to get a foodborne illness (food poisoning). Even if you don’t feel sick, the microorganisms that cause food-borne illness can cause serious harm to your baby.
