Quick Tip from Perezitos.com’s Dr. Peter L. Richel, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco:
"A well-balanced diet is necessary, both for yourself and for your baby. A healthy weight gain during pregnancy is 25 to 35 pounds.
Remember all the food groups as you plan meals; refer to www.mypyramid.gov. Vegetarians may continue their diet, but be certain to take in enough protein and supplement vitamin D, iron, and vitamin B12. Water is essential for you to maintain good hydration."
