What do you think is the healthiest food a mother to be could eat to help the development of her child as well as keep her strong for her children. Would you suggest that the father of the baby also go on a diet that will help motivate the motehr to stay on a healthy diet. What vitamins should a mother to be take that will keep her healthy and feed nutrients to her baby?

Baby I think that the healthiest foods a mother could eat would be stuff like what you get from Subway, because it has very little fat,and alot of healthy stuff,and besides it tastes really good,I think the father should go on a diet too,and trust me I would definatly do it with you,especially if it is a Subway diet,as for vitamins I am not sure,other then the vitamin we already take.

General healthy eating and exercise is all that's required - making sure to have a good balance of fats, proteins, iron, etc. Lean meat at least twice a week, fish at least twice a week and fruit and vegetables every single day. I think having the father keeping the same eating and exercise habits would be a really good idea - it's a bonding thing that they can do together, which is always nice, and it's that extra support for the mummy to be =) Stirfries, pastas, salads, stews etc should all be really good - anything with fresh, healthy ingredients =) There are specially formulated pregnancy multi-vitamins that you can find at probably any chemist if you ask =)

Thank you for your response to my discussion. These are just things that I have thought about as my fiance and I have discussed it ourselves... not so much the him going on the diet with me, but the fact of eating healthier.
