Vegetarian and Vegan diets have increased worldwide in the last decades. Although plant-based diets are at risk for nutritional deficiencies, evidence shows that well planned diets may be considered safe during pregnancy, but requires a strong awareness for a balanced intake of key nutrients. This along with exercise during pregnancy helps with better outcomes. With so much information on how food can affect pregnancy, it may seem confusing at times to know what advise to give to pregnant women. This webinar will help you understand the evidence-based guidelines on healthful vegetarian eating during pregnancy. We will discuss different vegetarian groups, macro and micronutrient requirements and importance of exercise in achieving better pregnancy outcomes.
