To eat well during pregnancy, you not only have to increase the amount of what you eat a little, but pay special attention to what you eat.

Avoid the idea of small snacks between meals, since you end up eating more what you owe and are generally elements that do not add nutritional value to our body or childbirth and eating more fruits and vegetables is also important.
