Go low GI for pregnancy September 08 2014

While we all benefit from eating well, during pregnancy this becomes even more important. Your diet during pregnancy can affect your child’s future health, long after they have been born.

Mother’s health during pregnancy can “program” her child’s metabolism in both good and bad ways. A poor diet during pregnancy predisposes a child to developing obesity or type 2 diabetes when he or she is older, where as a healthy low GI diet helps protect them.

Reducing the GI of your diet is one of the safest and most effective ways of ensuring the baby grows at a healthy rate.
