Twin Pregnancy Nutrition

Experts recommend that the calorie requirements in pregnancy with just one baby should be around 2500 calories daily, beginning in the second trimester. But a party of three, or more? You may need to be eating 3000 or more calories per day as soon as you're aware that you're pregnant with twins.

Here are some healthy ways to increase your calories:

  • Balance your diet with the food pyramid
  • Eat a variety of foods within the food groups
  • Set up a schedule for meals and snacks
  • Be sure to get enough dairy every day, like milk, yogurt or cheese
  • Add more fruits, vegetables, and whole grain breads to your menus
  • Carry snacks like dried fruits, nuts, and whole grain crackers in your purse
  • Stay hydrated
  • Eat frequent mini meals or snacks
  • Ask your doctor about prenatal vitamins and DHA supplements

Ask your doctor about Enfamom™ Prenatal Vitamins, a complete prenatal multivitamin.
