#HLWDK Daily Health Tips: What Should I Eat If I Want To Get Pregnant?


Q: Good evening, ma’am. Thank you for your educational post. I am sorry I want to ask, what and what can I be eating if I want to get pregnant easily?

A:Nutrition plays a huge role in pregnancy. Soon-to-be-mums need to eat healthy to ensure that they give their children a good start in life. So, if you’re planning on getting pregnant, it’s always a great idea to start taking pre-natal vitamins especially those that contain folate (folic acid). These will ensure that your baby’s spine develops properly.

Generally though, eat healthy: more fruits and veggies, complex carbohydrates (they are rich in fibre and keep you feeling full for a longer period of time) like beans, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice etc. Load up on proteins too (fish, chicken etc), calcium rich foods like yoghurt, skimmed milk etc

Stay off alcohol and smoking, reduce stress and if you can, have your babies before the age of 30 years for both men and women.

I hope this helps

Have a great night, y’all
