This resource outlines essential vitamins (e.g., folate and iron) important to the health of pregnant women and their developing babies. The foods which contain these essential vitamins are listed, which women should try to include in their everyday diet during pregnancy. Healthy eating hints and healthy weight gain during pregnancy are also included as part of the resource.
Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract
This resource is part of the Growing strong: feeding you and your baby set of resources developed by Queensland Health to help health staff talk with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families about nutrition for pregnant women. It would be suitable for individual or group settings, not only for pregnant women but also women who were considering a pregnancy. The brouchure could be left in community or health centres for clients to look at, or take home, for future guidance.
