New series: Nutrition and Pregnancy

I’ve had a few requests recently to write about what to eat during pregnancy. As fortune would have it, I’m taking a class right now on maternal and infant nutrition. So starting next week, my Thursday post will be dedicated to eating nutritiously for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. I’m excited to share what I’m learning! I don’t know how long the series will run…probably until I run out of things to say.

Right now, my plan is to include some “big picture” information on what a healthy pregnancy diet looks like (hint: not a lot different than a non-pregnant healthy diet), as well as detailed information on certain nutrients and foods. I’ll also offer what I hope is interesting information on the “whys” behind the recommendations. Because it’s so important, I’ll also talk about nutrition before conception, because that’s really important.

If anyone has any specific questions, you can leave them in the comments or e-mail me (the link to my e-mail address is in my profile).
