What should I eat when pregnant?

We know that morning sickness makes eating and drinking challenging – but trust us, a good diet can help you feel so much better, from the inside out.

  • It’s important to stay hydrated, so try to boost the amount of water you drink each day.
  • Try and eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. They’re a good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre, and you can eat them fresh, frozen, from a tin, dried or juiced – whichever way you like them. There’s a handy guide to portions here.
  • Every day, try to include 3-4 portions of carbohydrates. Things like bread, cereal, noodles, pasta, rice and potatoes. Even better, go for wholegrain or whole wheat varieties.
  • Making sure you’re getting enough dairy and Vitamin D means your wee baby’s bones will harden as they develop. Dairy contains calcium and is found in foods like yoghurt, milk and hard cheese. You’ll find some great ideas and options for getting your daily dairy here.
  • You can’t actually get enough Vitamin D from food alone, and a lot of it comes from sunshine. Since we don’t have much sun in Scotland, it’s best to take supplements all year round while you’re pregnant. You don’t need to buy expensive multi-vitamins. Everyone whos pregnant in Scotland can get free Healthy Start vitamins throughout their pregnancy, which contain Vitamin D. These are available from your midwife.
  • If you want to find out more about what you can and cant eat during pregnancy, visit the Ready Steady Baby website. Your midwife will also be able to talk you through the best ways to fit healthy food into your diet.

    Everyone is different, but hormones can cause lots of changes in your body and the way you feel.

Even if you were planning on becoming pregnant, realising that you are can still come as a bit of a shock, so don’t worry if you feel up and down.
