A Week of Delicious Pregnancy Meals and Snacks

Eating healthy when you're pregnant can be hard: You have crazy cravings and an even crazier schedule. But eating right is important for your growing baby, so check out our meal plan for a variety of nutritious, dietician-approved meals that you'll love. There's even ice cream!

This plan is designed so that you can pick a different meal and snack for each day of the week; we've counted the calories for you. And you get to eat lots -- breakfast, lunch, dinner, two snacks (one calcium rich, one regular), and a treat. Woo hoo! All recipes are single servings, so this is a total no-brainer. The recipes here are an average of 400 calories more than a non-pregnant woman eats (exactly what you need during your second and third trimester).

Total daily calories: 2200

If your doctor says you are underweight, you'll likely need about 2400 calories a day: Add an after-dinner snack from the snack list or double the size of one snack during the day.

If you started your pregnancy overweight, you'll likely need about 2000 calories a day: Only choose one snack each day.
