Choose healthy foods for you and your baby.
Your baby grows best when you eat healthy.
Every day, eat foods from all 5 food groups.
This is a general guideline. You may need more or less food.* Calorie needs are higher in the second and third trimesters. In your first trimester, eat amounts near the lower end for each food group range, and increase the amounts to the higher end in your second and third trimester.
