Nutrition plays a very vital role at all times in life. And rightly so, it does in pregnancy too. Along with providing sufficient nutrients to the mother’s body, sufficient nutrients should reach the growing offspring as well. Nutrition in pregnancy is directly proportional to maternal as well as offspring health. Optimal nutrition ensures optimal foetal growth. It also ensures lesser risk of developing diseases later in life (especially chronic non-communicable diseases). This article aims to review nutritional requirements during pregnancy and focus on the consequences of improper nutritional intake.
