Health & Nutrition Information
When you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you have special nutritional needs. This site is designed just for you. It has advice you need to help you and your baby stay healthy.
First - Visit your doctor or health care provider if you haven't already. Every pregnant woman needs to visit a doctor regularly. Only he or she can make sure both you and your baby are healthy. Your doctor can also prescribe a safe vitamin and mineral supplement, and anything else you may need.
Next - Get your own MyPlate Daily Checklist (formerly Daily Food Plan). Your Checklist will show you the foods and amounts that are right for you. Enter your information for a quick estimate of what and how much you need to eat.
Then - Learn more by choosing a topic from the menu below. "For More Information" will take you to the government's best advice on pregnancy and breastfeeding.
