Second trimester meal plan
Download and print this handy meal plan suited for the second trimester of your pregnancy. 

This trimester is often known as the honeymoon trimester – your morning sickness has (hopefully) gone and you are not feeling too uncomfortable in size yet. During this trimester, it is particularly important that you get sufficient protein and calcium to support your baby’s growth. Focus on meat, chicken, fish, beans and other legumes, eggs and dairy. You can now eat approximately an additional 1700 kilojoules per day to accommodate your baby’s growth.
