A mum’s guide to maternal nutrition

Mum’s diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding plays a vital role in influencing their baby’s future health. However, recent studies have shown that over half of women are not getting an adequate intake of some of the nutrients recommended by the Department of Health while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Our comprehensive maternal nutrition guides aim to help mum understand why her nutritional requirements increase during pregnancy and breastfeeding and how to meet these increased demands.
