Pregnancy Nutrition for Windows
What a woman eats during pregnancy is a most important determinant
of her own health and that of her child. Many women are deficient
in calcium, iron, folate and zinc. Iron deficiency can cause the
mother to be anemic during pregnancy and put the baby at risk of
anemia after birth. Zinc and calcium affect fetal growth and folate
is extremely important in the development of healthy spinal cord.
A child who is born strong and healthy has fewer illnesses throughout
life than a child who is born very small or with problems at birth.
Healthy babies grow up to do better in school and have fewer behavioral
problems than infants with congenital health problems. When an expectant
mother is not eating an adquate diet, she and her baby compete for
nutrients. In the long run, neither of them gets sufficient nourishment.
