Healthy diet during pregnancy

Healthy diet during pregnancy

Eating a good balanced diet will help with the changes your body will go through during the pregnancy and the birth. A balanced diet includes eating plenty of fruit and vegetables and drinking lots of water.

Eating healthy during pregnancy will also help your new-born baby. A balanced diet will give you both vitamins and minerals, as well as carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats.

See more information about diet during pregnancy on the Humber and North Yorkshire Maternity website and the NHS guidance for information on healthy eating in pregnancy.

For more information on vitamins in pregnancy, please see the Vitamins in pregnancy page.

The Healthy Start Scheme helps you to buy food and milk.

Apply for the Healthy Start Scheme. Contact the Healthy Child Service if support is needed to complete the application.

Healthy Start vitamins are available to eligible women and children via providers located across York. Please see the NHS find healthy start vitamins locator.
