Pregnancy: What may or may not be used?

  1. It is important to you and your unborn baby that you eat well when you are pregnant. You now have to keep two people healthy. No one will say that this is not difficult, you have some dietary restrictions and you will need to get a lot of extra vitamins. Do you want to know what you can and cannot do? Then read on in this article.

Before pregnancy

  1. When you have decided to start having children you can start taking folic acid. You keep taking this until at least two months into the pregnancy. Folic acid ensures that children are not born with an open spine. You also get too little vitamin D through your diet during the entire pregnancy. You will therefore have to take this in a supplement form during the entire pregnancy.

The first 3 months of pregnancy

  1. If you consider yourself overweight, it is absolutely not recommended to go on a diet with the effect of losing weight during the entire pregnancy. This is because you need a lot of nutrients to allow the baby to grow. Many women become nauseous in the first 3 months of their pregnancy and eat less regularly than intended. Also during this period you often get less healthy food and too little moisture, which will increase your weight.

What is allowed?

  1. It is important that you ensure that you eat a varied and above all healthy diet during the period of pregnancy. This means a lot of fruit and vegetables. Varied food means every day vegetables, fruit, nuts or seeds, meat or fish and dairy products. Anything that says "whole grain" is good for you too. So preferably eat whole wheat bread and whole wheat pasta instead of white bread.

What is not allowed?

  1. Raw products: Raw food is absolutely not allowed, no sushi, raw or half-cooked meat (the steaks are only allowed when they are fully cooked), meat products such as Filet American and roast beef are not allowed. Products with raw eggs such as homemade mayonnaise should not be consumed. Mayonnaise from a jar is allowed. Desserts containing raw eggs may not be consumed either. This is to prevent contamination with salmonella. Anything that has not been pasteurized is not allowed, no milk directly from the cow, so look carefully at the packaging of drinks and cheeses. An absolute no-go is alcohol. Alcohol disrupts the growth of your child's organs. Liver; liver has a high concentration of vitamin A, too much vitamin A can damage the fruit and cause the baby to develop birth defects.

What is allowed in limited quantities?

  1. You are allowed coffee in limited quantities. Caffeine is not good for (you and) your child. Limit the number of cups of coffee to a maximum of three per day. Licorice; licorice contains many substances that increase blood pressure. So it is not wise to eat a lot of this. You also have to be careful with products that are salty because they also increase blood pressure. Think of soups and sauces and aromas.

Other restrictions

  1. In addition to nutritional restrictions, there are also a number of restrictions that you are not allowed to physically.
