Thinking of getting pregnant?
Nutrients such as folate, iron, B vitamins and zinc have an effect on your baby’s development, sometimes before you even know you are pregnant.
The nourishment baby receives in the womb can affect his weight, risk for disease and cognition. In addition, the lifestyle choices during pregnancy can also affect labor, risk for complications, low birth rates and more.
Did you know?
Baby’s tastebuds develop at 5 months gestation. That’s right! The foods you eat during your pregnancy affect the taste of the amniotic fluid your baby swallows, which means exposure to a variety of flavours starts sooner than you’d expect. Eat a balanced and varied diet may mean bringing a little foodie into the world.
We recommend making healthy changes to your lifestyle at least three months prior to conceiving, to ensure enough time to optimize your health and micronutrient reserves.
