While pregnant, moms eat for two. After giving birth, moms still eat for two. A nutritious diet will give the baby nutrients that will promote his or her growth and health. Dr. Annebelle D. Aherrera talked about the Right Nutrition for Mommy and Baby, passing on information that will really help mom eat well and stay healthy.
