When you're expecting, what you eat and drink influences your child's health, possibly forever. Everyday foods and beverages take on new meaning, as some may present a danger to your developing baby.

Get all essential vitamins and minerals by getting a well balanced diet. Take vitamin supplements given by your doctor/clinic.

Eat leafy greens, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eat food with high level of calcium.

No alcohol. Restrict caffeine. Avoid half cooked meat and fast food.
