A healthy, balanced and varied diet during pregnancy is of utmost priority for you and for the optimum development of your child. Only then can you provide your baby with all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements he/she requires to grow and thrive.
By the way, your calorie requirements during pregnancy increase only marginally. Only from the fourth month do you require around ten percent more calories than before.
But what is really important is that your need for vitamins and minerals increases enormously during pregnancy. Did you know, for example, that at the start of pregnancy you require around double the amount of folic acid? It is likewise important to increase your supply of iron, calcium, iodine, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and vitamin D3.
