Baby-ready diet for women

Prepare for pregnancy by eating a healthy, baby-ready diet based on the five food groups and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you will both need.


Macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates) are the main sources of energy. Our recommendation for macronutrients in a baby-ready diet is 20% protein, 40% fat, and 40% carbohydrates. Eating foods rich in plant protein, such as soya, beans and lentils, and healthy fats, such as olive oil, can play a part.

Choosing complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains, starchy vegetables and fruits instead of refined or high-sugar foods, may help keep your blood sugar stable, which can also be a factor in fertility.


Women who take multivitamins with folic acid at least three times a week may be less likely to have ovulation infertility, which is important when you want to conceive.

Eating a nutritious prenatal diet ensures that when you do conceive, your developing baby has all the macro- and micronutrients needed to grow healthily even before you know you are pregnant.

Baby-ready diet for men

We used to think some nutrients, such as folic acid, were only important for moms-to-be. Scientists have now discovered that dads-to-be need some vitamins and minerals to help conception as well.

When thinking about starting a family, ensuring both parents-to-be have a healthy diet and a healthy weight is a very good place to start.
