Vegetarian food and pregnancy

What you eat when you're pregnant is extremely important, but it's even more important if you're vegetarian. Vegetarian mums-to-be need to be especially vigilant about getting enough protein and iron.


It’s important to eat a varied diet when you’re pregnant, and protein is an important part of that diet It’s vital to a baby's growth and development Getting enough protein can be a challenge for vegetarian mums-to-be in particular

As well as meat, you can get protein from milk, cheese, eggs, soy milk, tofu, cereals, nuts and pulses Your baby needs various kinds of protein, so make sure you eat a wide selection from all these food groups

Iron
As you do not eat meat, good sources of dietary iron are wholemeal cereal products, pulses, leafy green vegetables and dried fruit

Calcium
If you do not eat dairy products, it would be a good idea to take calcium supplements Talk to your LMC about this

Multivitamin tablets
It’s great to take a multivitamin tablet every day, regardless of whether you´re vegetarian or not If you choose one of the supplements made for pregnant women, you will get the recommended doses of folic acid and vitamin D in your tablet It’s difficult to get a sufficient amount of these nutrients through food alone
