Eating healthy when trying to conceive during pregnancy is vital
It's a fact: It is important to eat well-balanced meals at all times, yet this is even more essential when you are trying to get pregnant as well as during pregnancy. Many nutrients including vitamins and minerals are needed for the proper development of the baby.
Eating more fast food and less fruit when trying to get pregnant increases the time to get pregnant and increases your chances of being infertile.
A balanced diet is your best bet to have a healthy pregnancy. Restricted diets, diets with too low or too high calories, high-fat diets and some vegetarian diets are discouraged during pregnancy because they may not provide all the nutrition needed for the developing fetus.
