Quick Answers for a Healthy Start A healthy pregnancy starts with a well-balanced diet, but there s much more to know. For example: True or False?
* You need to eat an extra 500 calories a day when pregnant.
* Iron needs triple during pregnancy.
* A high-fiber diet is important during pregnancy.
Answers:
* False. Pregnant women require 300 extra calories a day and nursing women need an extra 500 calories a day. You ll find more on calories and weight gain in Chapter 1 and nutrition tips while breast-feeding in Chapter 9.
* False. Your need for iron doubles during pregnancy. Still, it can be difficult to get this much iron from food alone. That s why you should read more about iron in Chapter 3.
