Vitamins: A Few Additional Resources

Over the past several weeks, I've written posts about folic acid, calcium, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as how to choose a prenatal vitamin.

To close this series of blog entries, here are some additional links on prenatal nutrition:

  • Navalgazing Midwife's very informative post on Vitamin D & Its Role in Women and Children

  • A Good Pregnancy Diet according to Dr. Tom Brewer

  • Excellent articles on prenatal nutrition from the Drs. Sears

  • NutritionData.com offers lots of useful information on particular food items (processed and unprocessed) by typing in a food into the "enter food name" field at the top of the page. The site also has a Nutrient Search tool that allows you to select a particular nutrient and then view their list of foods that contain high amounts of the selected nutrient.

    If you can recommend any particularly useful or interesting books or websites on prenatal nutrition, please leave them in the comments!
