The truth is, eating for two means eating better, not necessarily more or at least not much more. It takes a total of 55,000 extra calories to make a baby. That may sound like a lot but the average pregnant woman only needs to add about 300 additional calories per day beyond her normal calorie intake (for most women this is between 1800 and 2000 calories total per day).
Good nutrition is very important, and be easy to accomplish during your pregnancy. You and your baby are nutritionally inseparable. How you take care of yourself, including how well you eat during pregnancy, directly affects both how you feel, and your baby. Pregnancy is a good time to fine tune an already good diet and improve a poor diet by eating nutritious, well balanced meals.
