Congratulations!

You’re having a baby or preparing to get pregnant! This is the start of an exciting adventure, and there are many things to think about. One of the most important aspects of having a healthy pregnancy and baby is your diet. Here are a few questions you’re probably already thinking about:
  • What are the essential nutrients I need during pregnancy?
  • What food should I eat for healthy weight gain during my pregnancy?
  • How can I avoid gestational diabetes and other dangerous conditions?
The list goes on and on.
With so much information out there, it is easy to get confused. However, what you eat during pregnancy significantly impacts the cognitive and behavioral development of your child.
And, what you eat impacts your own health as well, of course.

The risks of high blood sugar are real

Although the number of women affected by high blood sugar during pregnancy used to be low — about 3 to 4 percent — those numbers have doubled in recent years.
Gestational diabetes is a condition unique to pregnant women. Those pesky hormones make it tough for your body to produce and use insulin, which could be dangerous for you and for your baby, especially with today’s high-sugar diets.
Blood sugar imbalance and gestational diabetes increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes later in life for both mother and baby. Other risks of high blood sugar are high birth weight and preeclampsia, a serious blood pressure condition that can develop during pregnancy. 
So how do you make sure your blood sugar stays balanced? The key to prevention, of course, is diet.
