A healthy pregnancy eating pattern contains much of the same balance of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients as healthy eating patterns in general. The difference is.

During pregnancy, additional liquids are needed to keep you hydrated all the time. Healthy eating during pregnancy is critical to your baby’s growth and development.

Typically, you will need to consume an extra 300 calories a day. Food Groups.

It is always important to eat a variety of foods throughout the day making certain. Reply Shelby September 3, 2015 at 1:01 pm. Wow, this couldn’t have been posted at a better time! I am in my 2nd trimester of my first pregnancy and I am only just starting to get back on track with the type of healthy eating style I had pre-pregnancy.

Choose a variety of foods and beverages to build your own healthy eating style. Include foods from all food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, and protein foods. The amount and types of food you eat is an important part of a healthy eating style.

Healthy Eating During Pregnancy: A sensible meal plan that is rich in vitamins and minerals is essential for a developing baby. You may want to ask your health care provider for food recommendations or seek the help of a nutritionist in your area. Women who are underweight during pregnancy tend to eat low-calorie foods and not enough protein.

Healthy eating during pregnancy includes getting enough nutrients for you and your baby as well as knowing how much to eat. Eat food from different groups. So instead of focusing on eating a balanced meal, focus on eating balanced throughout the day. Get your fruits in, veggies, proteins, healthy fats, and carbs throughout the day.

  • 9:12 bless you for bringing up the importance of active folate. It should go hand-in-hand with talk of folate supplementation and is so often overlooked or unknown to professionals. Bravo!!!

  • When I concieved my son I was already overweight but I didn’t feel too bad about my body as I could still fit into trendy clothes and didn’t look awful. Over the course of pregnancy I gained roughly 40lbs and when I gave birth 14lbs immediately came off but in the days and weeks that followed nothing else did because the remainder was body fat. I gained it where it always goes, my face, boobs, back, arms and stomach. I looked like an inflated candy apple. I went from a European size 44 or 46 to a size 48. Where I live all the trendy clothes shops stop at an XL which is what I fit into when I’m not pregnant. I went shopping in New Yorker for some outfits and nothing fitted me. I resigned myself to men’s Nike shirts and black leggings until the weight came off and I counted 2,000 calories a day. The weight came off in about 2 months (I was also breastfeeding). I am still breastfeeding my 20 month old and have just found out I’m pregnant again. This time I’m counting calories and don’t eat more than 2,300 a day. I try and stick to 2,000 and I have cut out energy drinks and candy which I consumed all throughout my last pregnancy. I’m a big eater and generally eat more than my husband when I’m not paying attention to my diet. I’ll probably lose weight but at least I won’t gain any.

  • Thank you for this video. I feel awful for being sick during the first trimester. I’m 16 weeks right now finally eating 3 full meals and snacks(mostly fruits) I CANNOT stand meat but we’ll hopefully get there.

  • Oh thank you thank you for making this! So much good info… I am 6 weeks with my second child and first pregnancy was tough cause I had horrible GERD symptoms and threw up all of the time so nutrition is so important to me for this one… For my sake and baby’s! ��������

  • Do you think you can also absorb some magnesium by adding Epsom salts to a bath? With some YL oils, of course:) My Restless Leg Syndrome is much better now that I’m supplementing with magnesium, taking Epsom salt baths, and going to my chiropractor:)

  • I loved this video and I wish I would have found it sooner! I’m 21 weeks pregnant today but it’s never too late to start getting all those proper vitamins and minerals right??
    Also natural calm will be my life saver! Leg cramps are no joke!

  • Great video, +Becca Bristow!!
    I have persistent constipation for most of my life and it has worsened from the prenatal vitamins ( iron and calcium, I’m guessing). Do you have any suggestions for immediate and continuous relief? My concern is the build up of estrogens in the body that should be excreted.

  • You should not and never eat liver when pregnant. This is bad information. In fact liver is one of the foods listed unsafe for pregnancy at any stage.

  • I’m on my first trimester and sometimes it can be hard to eat anything luckily I haven’t thrown up but I’m just nauseous all day and thinking about certain food gross me out. I’ve seen your video on my feed but every time I looked at the photo it made me nauseous! Lol I can’t wait till this feeling goes away

  • As far as the weight gain, you don’t have to gain a single pound during pregnancy. I get your point may be to help others not to stress about it if they do gain weight and to encourage others not to gain excess weight, but due to my weight at the time, my doctor wanted for me not to gain any weight. She didn’t suggest that I loose any but she definitely encouraged me not to gain and I didn’t. I did not gain one pound in 9 months. Nothing changed with my diet or exercise except an increase in my water intake.

  • Hi, I am a little worried. I started my pregnancy at 142, I am currently 18 weeks and I am 161. I don’t know what I am doing wrong, I sometimes eat “bad” like potatoes chips or a slice of pizza but is not all the time and my sister and my doctor are saying I have gained to much and I think that stress is making me gain more. I just don’t know what to do. I am having twins by the way

  • Hi! Very informative video thank you so much! I ordered the Ritual prenatal vitamins and one of the ingredients is “Methylated 4th generation Folate”. Is this the same as methylated hydra folate? (I think that’s what you said)

  • I just came across your channel a few months ago, and I have to say it has quickly became my favorite! I absolutely love all of the information that you include in your videos, especially since I am pregnant at the moment. I know I’ll continue watching your videos even after pregnancy, because I love nerding out on nutrition info!

  • Thank you for touching on the active folate vs folic acid!! Not enough people know about this and it’s SO important!! I take a separate methyl folate to help my body absorb it best ����

  • Hi Becca thank you for the infomative video, you’re more informative than my doctor ☺️����. Can you make a healthy cooking video about how to raise HB (hemoglobin red blood cells)? I’m currently pregnant 5 months and my HB dropped to 8,7…. I think it’s also important not just for pregnant women but for all people who has anemia…. thank you:)

  • Love your videos Becca! Been following along on your pregnancy journey. So exciting! I’m 15 weeks and even though I’m a dietitian too definitely have some things to brush up on in terms of pregnancy specific nutritrion. loved this one. Thanks for sharing!

  • Great video so informative as usual! Not pregnant nor trying to be anytime soon but I think it’s interesting in general as well. P.S if you wanted to ever make an hour long video about anything you could count on me to watch lol P.P.S the outro music made me laugh idk why ��

  • I am hypoglycemic and borderline diabetic due to my PCOS. Im 4 1/2 months pregnant and my pre pregnancy weight wss 208. Im now at 175. So a loss of 33 lbs. I stopped losing for a few weeks but now losing again even though I havent been doing anything differently. I feel like im so pressured to gain and ive been eating. Any tips?

  • Hi Becca!

    Can you do a video on what supplements/vitamins you take during and to prepare for pregnancy? Love your videos! ❤️ I’m also a Young Living member and love my oils!

  • I am type 1 diabetic and I’ve never been pregnant but I agree with you Becca on eating healthy to avoid/ease gestational diabetes. Diet helps me a lot in managing my disease along with exercise and insulin. I can only imagine eating right would help the pregnancy as well.

  • I opted to not take the glucose test due to the chemicals in the nasty drink they provide. I then had to document my blood sugar 4 times a day for two weeks. It was the biggest eye opener to me. It was amazing what spiked my sugar.

  • I almost died from anorexia back in 2005 and the book “Intuitive Eating” saved my life. Our dietician in the treatment facility was a big believer in that concept and it literally changed my entire relationship with food. I have been in recovery for almost 13 years. I sing its praises from the rooftops and encourage my friends and family to do the same!

  • I think I eat ok to be pregnant but I also think i need to eat better I really haven’t even gain much weight while pregnant im just worried about getting to fat while pregnant.��‍♀️

  • I am a bit fed up with advise like “eat real food” and balanced diet. What is real food? Is pasta or bread real? I’m pregnant now and my body doesn’t accept fruit and most veg. Most of pregnant women find eating very difficult and general advise just doesn’t help ��

  • I been getting UTI during my pregnancy i been taking Antibiotics because the UTI keeps returning. Is there anything I can do to avoid this from returning? I’m almost done taking my Antibiotics. I’m 31 weeks this week.

  • Just found you! Definitely going to subscribe! What camera do you use? It is amazzing! Also, do you use its microphone or have an aftermarket one? If so, what is it?

  • Preach! I really need to listen to this right now since I was too sick today from some nasty virus and wound up eating McDonald’s.:/ tomorrow back to meal prepping healthy meals for the rest of the week.

  • Gained 65 lbs with my pregnancy! Totally agree I would never do it again…it wasn’t all me, I had complications where I couldn’t work out but I could have eaten better! My son is 14 months and I have lost 43 but have the other 20ish to go! It is soooo much harder to lose than I thought! Obviously having a child takes up a lot of to e I had before…when I thought about losing weightbefore I had the baby in kind of forgot about the fact I would have a lot less time to workout, meal prep etc….So long story short…listen to Becca!!!

  • Just wanted to provide a heads up Gestational Diabetes is a placenta issue, not a diet issue. You’ve made some comments in your videos and podcast re: gestational diabetes that come off kind of judgey like women who have gestational diabetes went crazy with Skittles or something. That isn’t the case. Just something to be aware of. I actually had to stop watching this video after the weight gain segment… it just sounded holier than thou.
    I also had to stop listening to the podcast after so many comments like “when we get gifts at the shower”, “technically my parents are throwing the shower, but I’m planning it”… it just sounded totally entitled.

  • I’m not bringing this up to be argumentative but out of pure curiosity. You mention the health ramifications of excess weight gain in pregnancy and explain why you do not subscribe to unhealthy eating habits and over eating etc. However, that does not seem to be what you discuss outside of pregnancy. You don’t mention the health consequences of excess weight and seem to subscribe somewhere along the lines of HAES. What’s the difference? I realize the problems that can occur with pregnancy in itself but you go beyond that in your reasoning for gaining too much weight. Don’t get me wrong I agree with you but I also agree that we need to be real about the ramifications of excess weight regardless of pregnancy too (In a supportive manner that maybe wasn’t present in the past).

  • I’m 12 weeks pregnant and have also been struggling with feeling sick, hang in there I feel ya lol. Thanks for the great meal ideas xx

  • This is awesome! What DHA supplement do you take? I’m 16 weeks pregnant and would like to be taking a good DHA supplement. I get my fish oil from Costco and I don’t think it’s the best. I was also told by my awesome homeopathic dr that if you are taking a good amount of DHA it can prevent PPD and baby blues!

  • Gosh I just love you! I’m 21, single, not pregnant, and just adore you and your videos. I recommend them to everyone ��. I can’t wait for baby girl to make her debut!!!

  • Hope you are feeling better this trimester! Thanks for another inspo food video!… May I ask where your “B” necklace is from? I love it!!

  • I can’t do Natural Calm, because the stevia makes me wake up wired in the middle of the night. My body reacts to it like it was sugar. Any sweetener/sugar substitute that is 200x sweeter than sugar has a gross fake taste to me regardless of whether it comes from a plant or is a man made chemical. I wish they made it without stevia.

  • I think it would be helpful if you tracked the calories and macros on your What I Eat In a Day videos just so viewers could know how much you are eating, even though you don’t track yourself!

  • I loved this video! Very informative! Do you think you could share on your instagram what amount we should be taking everyday while being pregnant?

  • I can’t seem to find videos regarding eating disorders and pregnancy. I was severely ill when I found out I was pregnant. I’m doing so much better now and I have a healthy baby growing ❤️
    This video did help. I’m just trying to relearn eating and trying to find out what’s best for me since my case isn’t like everyone else’s…

  • I’m so glad I watched this! Just got my BFP for baby #2 a few days ago. With my first I gained 27 lbs and was pretty happy with that, however this time around I am going to focus more on consuming whole foods as you suggest. Any extra weight with my first melted off with breastfeeding. I’m excited to experience it all again. You will be a fantastic mom, Becca! ��✨

  • I don’t think there is a prevention for gestational diabetes. Obviously, keeping a steady blood sugar is important for all the other reasons you mention as well as management of GD.

  • Hey Becca! Could you PLEASE do a video about PCOS and the ‘diets’ that are associated with that and what your opinion is on the subject!! please <3

  • Matt literally eating a random breakfast in the middle of the afternoon is my inspiration for how I should live my life from here on out.

  • I love all your videos. Not pregnant but I have an 18 month old and love watching your videos no matter what the content is. I am a nutrition nut. I personally believe your first trimester is just as important as your last. The reason is I have a genetic disorder because my mum didn’t eat an adequate amount of protein in her first trimester.

  • I have heard mixed opinions on weight loss during pregnancy. If you are overweight/obese, is it ok to lose weight while pregnant? I ask because I have been eating healthier and walking not anything strict at all, and I am naturally losing weight. I eat when I am hungry I am just making better choices. If I continue this, and lose weight while pregnant, is that ok?

  • As a dietitian, have you ever looked into how all the calcium from dairy is actually unabsorbable by the human body? There have been several studies on it, I think it would be worth looking up. Also can you do more Nutrition 101 videos if possible? They are very informative:)

  • What about an emphasis on too much vitamins? Such as vitamin A. Too much liver as well as certain supplements have too much. My coworker got pregnant and was using a supplement that contained too much vitamin A. Luckily she checked with her doctor

  • Hi Becca, thanks for this great video. I am wondering if you can link a copy of the studies you’re referring to on folic acid being linked to tongue ties and lip ties? Thanks!

  • This made me think of that recent episode of the Kardashians where Khloe is pregnant and she’s trying to eat healthy because her dr doesn’t want her to gain more than 30 pounds I think it was because her baby was already fairly big and and they were worried the baby would get too big for her to be able to deliver vaginally. Well Kris showed up at Khloe’s with 4 dozen of Krispy Kreme donuts and Khloe didn’t want them and she left them there for her anyways. She knew she was trying to eat healthy but she kept making her super heavy high calorie foods because she thinks you should sit on the couch and stuff your face all day. She wanted Khloe to gain 75 pounds! She didn’t think Khloe should be working out either. Lol I’m sure a lot of this was just made up for the show but it was pretty funny!

  • I’ve never clicked on a video faster, thanks for the great info!! I found you because of a pregnancy video (I’m currently 17 weeks) and I love your nutrition philosophy, it’s similar to my own but inspirational! Keep up the good work! I would totally buy something you wrote about nutrition during pregnancy, FYI

  • Love your pregnancy vids. Hoping to be pregnant in the next few months after my wedding and you seriously have allllll the advice ��

  • This is awesome Becca! We are currently TTC after an early miscarriage so I’m all about nutrition and making sure my body is getting what it needs. Your super sweet outro made me almost cry �� thanks for all you do in educating us with these important facts. [btw your ending song is literally my hubby’s wake-up tune on his phone….I dread it every morning LOL ��]

  • I’m not sure why but when I was pregnant I had to eat WAAAAY more than recommended. The OB said it happens to some people when pregnant but I gained just at the bottom of what was recommended. Although it’s been hard to reign back since (I’m a year postpartum still nursing a lot and 5lb from my prepregnancy weight) anyway.. I am eating way better than a few months ago because if I snack on bad stuff my kid wants it so now I’m motivated to not snack so badly lol.

  • I wish I could eat like I normally do. 1st Trimester I’m limited to bowls of cereal and on a good day maybe avocado toast and veggies.

  • I hate this so much i throw up i feel like throwing up alll the time. My emotions are volcanic. I’m sad I’m mad and happy i hate this so much

  • Absolutely I over ate during my first which I totally regret and have since changed my lifestyle and food choices. I gained 50 lbs for my first although I did seem to quickly loose it after but still I wasn’t proud. My second, I knew more, was more educated, and had been maintaining a healthy lifestyle for years and gained 22 lbs. Great info! Love your videos!

  • I was always under the impression that gestational diabetes was a hormonal thing and how you eat during pregnancy can’t really prevent it (just like eating sugary food won’t cause type 1 or 2 diabetes).

  • nothing that can make you feel more alone—or stressed out—than trying to conceive. While you might have spent the better part of your youth doing all that you could to not get pregnant, when you’re ready to build your family and the going gets tough, it’s normal to have anxiety. Though TTC can feel exhausting, frustrating and lonely, the CDC estimates that more than ten percent of all couples will struggle with fertility—that’s 1 in 10 partnerships.I want to thank God for putting a smile in my face, I have been looking for the fruit of the womb for the pass six years of marriage. I took in last year after taking the pill a dr gave to my husband, he met with a doctor you gave us assurance that I will get pregnant within a month after taking a particular pill. But I still call it magical pill, because it happen the way he said it. All thanks to God I have my own baby now and is a boy. You too can contact him if you have the same issue on [email protected] gmail.com or call and WhatsApp him on +2348128107710

  • Hi can you tell me since we know we incorporate many things which we normally dont do so since I understood I am pregnant I am eating many fiber carb food but that has also changed my bowel movements like I go 2 and sometimes 3 times day can pls tell me your experience about bowel movements

  • Health food shops in the UK won’t even sell you raspberry leaf tea until you’re 36 weeks pregnant. I started drinking it at 34 and my baby came at 36. I really regretted it because he had severe jaundice due to being prem and was very close to being brain damaged. I thought it was well known raspberry leaf tea brought on labour? Or is red raspberry leaf different?

  • May I ask your favorite sources of info for pregnancy..like how you found out about the tea.. I’m a first time mom and searching for great reference books/blogs

  • Thanks for the information and I totally agree with you. Just hit the second trimester a few weeks ago now… Man time flies and I finally have some control again in what I eat! What do you recommend to stop candy cravings? I’m so aware of candy and it’s uselessness in a diet but I eat like four now and laters daily. Cannot help myself! Recently the craving has improved and I can usually go for fruits instead. Specifically oranges with salt… Crazy cravings lol. The salt part makes me paranoid too! I’m overweight so ideally I would gain the minimum amount of weight possible. So far so good and I don’t deprive myself. I decided about a year ago that I would never do another deprivation diet again. I’ve lost some weight, about 12 pounds prior to pregnancy just from eating the healthiest of what is available to me and trying to make better choices. One day at a time I guess. Congratulations on getting through morning sickness! I still can’t eat chicken to save my life lol.

  • I am currently taking the nature’s bounty prenatal with DHA. It says it has 1333 mcg DFE of folate, but underneath it has (800 mcg folic acid)…does this mean I am taking the active form or just folic acid?

  • I’m in my first trimester right now and spicy food is ALL I THINK ABOUT!!!!! Which is so weird I usually don’t go for spicy but I’m craving it so bad

  • Great video! I am trying to get pregnant and I am also going to be starting the keto diet in a few weeks. If I get pregnant, is the keto diet safe for pregnancy? Do you have any suggestions?

  • Just found out I’m pregnant, this is my third baby but I gained too much weight with my first 2 kids. I was able to lose it both times but it was hard. I want to gain only the recommended amount (25-35 pounds) this time so I love watching videos like this to get ideas. I love the roasted cauliflower since raw cauliflower hurts my stomach.

  • I’d say you’d be ok for tuna! First trimester I avoided everything that was “not good” but by like 14/16 weeks I was eating crab legs and anything that sounded appealing! Of course always ask dr but you know to avoid shark, tile fish or whatever. The dr should have told you, tuna is fine I ate it and I had an almost 8 lb baby and she was perfectly healthy! I’m a water drinker only and she’s got the most beautiful skin, all the nurses when she was born asked if I only drank water, they said they can tell when moms drink water vs soda, she also never had baby acne ��

  • Random different things is my favourite lunch as well:-D Glad you’re feeling a bit better, hoping for very good very soon! Ps. Loving the podcast as well. Keep forgetting but I have to figure out how to leave a review on it!

  • Becca now that you will be a mum you HAVE to watch the flipside of the moon youtube channel. Christiana is an amazing mum of 3 and she is also a scientific based gal just like you and she eats healthy and feeds her kiddos healthy too, has GREAT mum tips, etc. Her vlogs are unbelievable entertaining, I think you would like her too! would love to see a collab with you and her in the future!

  • I’m not pregnant (and don’t plan to be for a long time) but I’m sitting here listening intently to every word as if I am. That must be a sign of a interesting/informative video. All the best on the rest of your pregnancy!

  • That’s the first time i have heard you mention the MTHFR gene which i was diagnosed with, my Dr said that regular folic acid is absolutely fine but all the research i have done says otherwise! So glad to hear that from you too, thanks for mentioning it!:)

  • You will be the perfect mom! But i have a question its not hate but why you put cows milk on your oats i think you now that it is not good for you and almond milk or any other plant based milk are so kuch better! This is what i think its no hate at all i love your video’s

  • I replaced tuna with sardines during my pregnancy. Also, sardines are a superfood and great for the baby`s development. Loved the video!

  • Yum looks delicious perfect for me so i can eat a day for home and office tell olive i love her sooooooooooooo much and i say hi to her love dogs drooling over my samsung galaxy j4 love your recipes making me hungry Thanks Ramya

  • You really made my ears perk up when you mentioned folic acid being linked to lip and tongue ties. I am 31 weeks along with #6 and just checked my prenatal. It has folic acid, not folate. But my 1st, 4th and 5th kids all have a lip tie.

  • Second month and I literally can’t get up entire day, don’t feel hungry at all, can’t eat anything. Just feel sad for the one inside me coz m not able to provide any good nutrients to the baby. I don’t want to take any medicines or supplements at this time

  • Good job still eating healthy during your pregnancy! When I got pregnant it was “give me all the chocolate!”… that didn’t work out so well in the end, lol

  • At least Becca is eating full meals I see some on here being boogie as hell like girl your ass gonna have a 3pound baby the way your eating..shout out to Becca for the prefect balance!!

  • is there a reason you decide to choose dairy milk instead of one of the variety of plant based milks, many of which have the same or even more protein than normal milk? Not any hate or anything but it’s proven that dairy does nothing good for you! I switched over only plant milk a while ago to cut down on my dairy consumption (bc I eat a lot of cheese LOLtrying to work on that)

  • Not a criticisms. Trust me this is not enough calories for both you & baby. Sure you won’t need more calories right now but you don’t want doctor to tell you at third trimester that you’re carrying an underweight baby either. You can still do all you’re expert at with healthy foods but more calories! Also, of all the protein choices in the world while you’re pregnant you’re having tuna? mercury & birth defects are real. You’ve been warned.

  • Could you do a pregnancy nutrition video and cover stuff like what to and not to eat? You mentioned something about tuna being risky, I’d love to learn about other foods that are risky and the foods that are super beneficial:) Love you, love your videos! Thanks Becca!
