Diet and folic acid can influence pregnancy outcomes
Healthy dietary choices are not only important for expectant mothers during the early months of pregnancy but equally important in the months prior to conception. Fast food consumption prior to pregnancy was found to be a risk factor for gestational diabetes, while low consumption of green leafy vegetables and fruit was found to increase the risk for several pregnancy complications including gestational diabetes, spontaneous pre-term birth and having a small for gestational age baby.
