Proper nutrition during pregnancy and breastfeeding is crucial for the health and development of both the mother and baby.

Good nutrition is important for pregnant and breastfeeding women as they need to provide adequate nutrition for both themselves and their growing baby. During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes numerous changes, and she requires increased amounts of essential nutrients, including protein, iron, calcium, and folic acid, to support her baby's development.

Similarly, during breastfeeding, a woman's body requires additional nutrients to produce breast milk, which provides optimal nutrition for the baby. A diet rich in nutrients can also help support the mother's recovery from childbirth and maintain her own health and well-being.
