You’ve heard the maxim that pregnant women need to “eat for two” more times than you can remember. But contrary to popular belief, this adage is NOT true. While a pregnant woman needs extra nutrients like 1,000 mg more calcium and 27 – 30 mg more iron, you DON’T need to “eat for two” to satisfy this added nutritional need. Today, the prevailing rule of thumb is that pregnant women ONLY require an additional 300 calories per baby a day. So, if you’re carrying twins, you’d consume 600 more calories than normal. Pregnancy is not a time for overindulgence, it’s a time to eat sensibly and healthily. The trick is to consume these extra calories in a way will give a pregnant woman’s body the added nutrition it needs. Try eating a handful of nuts or dried fruit for a tasty, nutition-rich snack. While it might be tempting to look at pregnancy as an opportunity to get your nosh on, remember that you’re not really eating for two, more like eating for ONE plus a tiny being.
