Webinar: Basics of Real Food Prenatal Nutrition
If we want to give pregnant women the best chance of having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby, we desperately need to get better, more up-to-date, and scientifically sound advice out there.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- What is real food and why it makes sense during (and before) pregnancy
- Where current prenatal nutrition guidelines miss the mark (and how we got where we are)
- Myths surrounding prenatal nutrition and evidence supporting an alternative approach (I’ll cover specific examples including salt, macronutrients, select micronutrients, food safety, and more)
- Are current recommendations really evidence-based?
- Why we need a paradigm shift
- Rationale for a real food diet that incorporates principles from ancestral nutrition/traditional cultures
- Sample meal plans and nutrient breakdown from conventional policy compared to real food
