What you eat during pregnancy affects your child’s lifelong health
An integral part of a natural pregnancy is the food you’re eating. Science has confirmed that a woman’s pregnancy diet has a profound impact on the baby’s health. That is why it is important to eat foods that are minimally processed and organic whenever possible.
It has been shown that if a pregnant woman eats the right foods, she will have less:
- Morning sickness
- Weight gain
- Lost sleep
- Labor complications
- Gestational diabetes
The medical system tends to blame all these various pregnancy problems on “hormones” or physical changes. The truth is, however, that your diet affects your hormones AND your body’s ability to maintain a healthy state DESPITE the hormonal changes. That’s because what you eat can intimately control your hormone levels and hormonal balance.
Not only does an optimal diet help the mother, but it is vitally important for the baby as well.
Eating certain natural foods will help your baby develop into a vibrant, healthy child
I can’t emphasize enough the great importance of pregnancy nutrition! Your baby depends on getting the right nutrients in the right proportions from the foods you eat. These nutrients are literally the building blocks and foundation of your child’s lifelong health. Your baby’s organ development— including that of the brain, heart, digestive system, muscles, skin, hair, bones and eyes—is occurring rapidly at this very critical time in his life. There is no other time in life where nutrition is more important than now.
- Eating the right foods now will help your child to have clearer skin, clearer eyes, stronger hair, toned muscles, a strong heart, and more attractive features, for life.
- Eating the right foods now will also help your child have a better disposition, with less crying and better sleep habits. In the future, she will be more resistant to ADHD and depression, for life.
- Your baby’s intelligence will be benefitted as well, and he will enjoy better verbal development, social development, and a better disposition, attention span, and learning skills, for life.
What you eat is foundational. That is why I encourage every expectant and hopeful mother to do what she can to eat a healthy and fulfilling diet. Because of this, I have compiled recipes and tips for pregnancy eating that maximize the most beneficial pregnancy foods—foods that have been shown to make a profound impact on your baby’s health.
It is important to know exactly which damaging chemicals and foods to avoid
Certain industrial food additives increase the chances for:
- Endocrine disruption
- Inhibited or altered brain development
- Increased risk of cancer later in life
- and more
Sign up for my pregnancy tips to learn what foods likely to contain chemicals that are damaging to your developing baby. Just this information alone is priceless.
Eating the right foods can also lessen the chances of your child developing various lifelong health problems
Scientists have found that children whose mothers ate certain foods during pregnancy have less chances of developing debilitating diseases later in life. Children of these mothers have less:
- Heart disease
- Obesity and overweight
- Diabetes (Types 1 and 2)
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- And more…
The above diseases are serious and should be taken seriously because they can significantly lower your baby’s quality of life.
My goal is not to overwhelm expectant parents with information, but to educate and motivate. Many people equate healthy eating with boring, tasteless food and countless hours in the kitchen. But this doesn’t have to be so!
With the right instruction and guidance, anyone can learn to eat a delicious pregnancy diet that supports a vibrant, healthy baby and an energetic pregnancy.
It must also be emphasized that while diet has been proven to have a profound effect on the prevention of these diseases and a child’s overall health, nutrition is not the only factor in health. With good nutrition, however, you can vastly improve your chances of having a vibrant, healthy baby and an energetic pregnancy.
To get you started (and so you’re not overwhelmed!), I have put together a very small set of recipes for you to try. They are delicious, simple, and easy to prepare. You can gain access to the PDF by inputting your email through the link below:
