After much speculation two-time Grammy award-winning pop star Pink recently confirmed that she is indeed pregnant. Responding to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres’ inquiry as to why the singer appeared to be “glowing” Pink answered, “I’m eating for two these days.”

Although it’s important for women to carefully consider their food choices while pregnant the phrase, “eating for two” can be a bit misleading as this phrase does not mean that an expectant mother should eat twice as much. Instead, it is recommended that women increase their daily caloric intake by approximately 300 calories a day while pregnant.

As a certified nutritionist and new mom, Isabel De Los Rios developed her educational video series What to Eat While Pregnant to help women understand which foods are the best foods to eat while pregnant. De Los Rios encourages pregnant women to focus on eating healthy, nutrient dense foods to ensure that they gain an ideal amount of weight for a vibrant pregnancy, delivery of a healthy baby, and a quick postpartum recovery.

De Los Rios explains, “Let me emphasize this is not the time to diet or try to lose weight. You want to put on healthy weight, but not too much weight as it could lead to complications later on, like gestational diabetes.”

De Los Rios encourages women to limit sugar and refined carbohydrates and instead focus on proteins including natural lean beef, organic eggs, and raw nuts. Fruits and vegetables are packed with fiber, water, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, making them among the best foods to eat while pregnant.
