Fertility Diet

What to Eat When Trying For a Baby



When trying for a baby, what you eat is of vital importance.  Ensuring you are getting the right nutrients lays the foundation for a healthy body with healthier eggs, sperm and baby – fact.

In this day and age we are not taught in school what foods are nutrient dense and how they function.  Instead, most of us make food choices based on persuasive advertising.

Examples of persuasive advertising

Big industries are often selling nutrient deficient foods as:

  • “The best protein source” (especially for runners) or;
  • “The best iron source” (with fortified iron in their cereal) or;
  • The biggest farce of all “milk for calcium” which is one of the biggest cons of our lifetime. (Read more via our sister site I’m Sublime)

If what I have said has touched a nerve, please look into this yourself or contact me and I will happily shed some research based light on the situation.

Nutrient dense foods give you energy

To fall pregnant it requires lots of energy.
