    Vitamins during Pregnancy

    What has been your favorite pre-natal vitamin during your pregnancy and post-partum period?

    Dear sunnymumof5,

    I like to take the recommended vitamins (folic acid, Calcium and vitamin D) and then make an extra effort to ensure that my diet is healthy, balanced and packed with fresh fruit and vegetables. I also enjoy eating organic food in pregnancy because studies have shown these contain significantly higher vitamins and minerals than their non-organic equivalents.

    Best wishes,
    LJ

    Hi,

    Pregnant women should aim to eat 70g of protein per day. This is in addition to the recommended vitamins. Protein is only converted to fat by the body if you eat more than the daily amount that your body needs. Before this level is reached the protein is used as energy - which is very important in pregnancy.

    Warm wishes,
    LJ
