When you are pregnant it is important that your diet is ‘good quality’ which means you are getting a balance from all of the five food groups.

    If you don’t eat fish your diet may need a bit more planning. Although there is no reason that a vegetarian diet can’t be healthy, but a diet without meat is not automatically healthy.
