Eating for Two

Can't I get all the nutrients that I need from food?

Although experts agree that food is the best means of obtaining the nutrients required during pregnancy, getting all required nutrients from your diet alone is not easy.

During pregnancy, requirements for some vitamins and minerals increase far more than requirements for calories. Daily requirements for some vitamins and minerals increase as much as 50%, whereas energy needs increase by only 300 calories per day in the second and third trimesters*.

As a result, you should choose foods carefully to obtain all the necessary nutrients while maintaining appropriate weight gain. Prenatal supplements are designed to make this task easier by supplying a significant portion of vitamin and mineral requirements. S-26® MAMA with DHA is a well-balanced nutritional beverage for your pregnancy.
