A mother’s nutrition affects her body and the health of her baby. Maintaining a healthy balanced diet helps ensure you and your baby stay healthy throughout the pregnancy. Our prenatal workshop includes a live cooking demo by our chef who will provide recipes for plant forward meals plus a live Q&A with a midwife & nutritionist.

Our time together will include the tips and conversation about the following:

  • Nutritional needs for baby and mother in each trimester
  • Important foods to include in everyday life
  • How to achieve healthy weight gain and avoid eating for “two”
  • Important nutrients for you and your baby (brain development, bones, healthy development)
  • Healthy pregnancy snacks
  • Cravings and food aversions
  • Nutrition tips to alleviate some common discomforts: nausea, fatigue, heartburn, constipation, water retention

Very limited capacity. Registration required.
