CONGRATULATIONS ON THE GREAT NEWS! Whether this is your first baby and the whole process is new to you, or you're a veteran mommy who knows the drill, or you already gave birth and are ready to get your body back into fighting shape, OR you're a super great friend to someone expecting and want to provide a gift of meal service when the new baby comes home for the first time... the PALETA PREGNANCY meal program could be perfect for you or as a gift!

During this precious time, everything you eat contributes to your unborn child's development so it is very important to make sure you get all the required nutrients to help your baby grow and thrive! Your baby eats what you eat, but that doesn't mean you are eating for two. We know how time-consuming and confusing it is to figure out what foods to increase and stay away from during pregnancy. There is a lot to learn and remember so let us take the worry out and do it all for you!

PALETA does all the work by making sure to eliminate high-risk foods that could be harmful to you or your baby during pregnancy. For instance, we eliminate fish high in mercury like tuna and swordfish, unpasteurized foods like soft cheeses and raw juices, seared and smoked seafood and meat because of the potential dangers they could pose to your unborn child. And no two calories are exactly the same. We make sure your meals and snacks are rich in ingredients that help optimize the healthy development of your baby and help alleviate unpleasant symptoms you may experience, like morning sickness, which is common during the first trimester.

What if I don't want a full day of meals and snacks?
No problem! If you have additional food preferences, allergies or would like more flexibility in your meal options, simply choose our Perfect Plate plan and ask us for the pregnancy guidelines.

I am trying to conceive soon. What should I eat?
Maybe you need a PRE-CONCEPTION DIET MAKEOVER! What you put into your body now matters as much as it does when you're pregnant. Get your body into ultimate pre-conception shape by allowing PALETA PREGNANCY to provide you with meals and snacks nutritionally designed to ensure you are eating the proper nutrients to make sure your pending pregnancy is in the PINK! (Or BLUE!)

Should I focus on certain foods during each trimester? Does your plan accommodate this?
Absolutely! Just let us know which trimester you are in and we can focus on certain foods. Good nutrition is extremely important, but can be challenging, particularly for women who suffer from morning sickness. Every bite counts!

I know some foods are not good for my baby. What should I do?
We do all the work for you by eliminating high-risk foods like fish high in mercury, unpasteurized foods like soft cheeses and raw juices, seared and smoked seafood and meat because of the potential dangers they could pose to your unborn child.

What is the deal with herbs such as sage, mint and parsley?
The herbs our dietitian has identified as potentially responsible for MILK DEPLETION for our breast feedings mommies are sage, mint and parsley. However, research tells us they have to be consumed in very high, therapeutic doses (eg, dressings heavily laden with sage, or peppermint oil in cough drops/syrups or hard candies). In fact, in high doses, these ingredients are often used to help mom during the weaning process. We primarily use the above 3 herbs as a garnish which can be removed from the meals, but extremely limit their use in any food items for consumption. We are unable to completely remove the herbs from our meals and snacks, but assure you the amounts are negligible unless you have a specific allergy. If this is the case, you may opt for our Personal Chef program, which accommodates all allergies and food tolerances.

I am worried about gaining weight. How many extra calories do I need?
It's a myth that you are eating for two and it's not necessary to double your food intake. It is recommended that expecting mommies consume an extra 300-350 calories per day and for postnatal mommies who are nursing, an additional 250 calories are recommended. Of course, if your physician is recommending otherwise for YOU, then just let us know!

Body after baby? How do I get mine back?
With the right mix of exercise and a consistent, healthy diet, you can get it back in no time. Our FIT MOMMY plan provides approximately 1350 calories per day with delicious, energy-sustaining meals and snacks. If you are looking to add an exercise regimen to your routine, PALETA partners with some of the best trainers and fitness professionals in the country. Just email us at concierge@paleta.com and we will find the perfect program for you!

What if I am breastfeeding?
While you're nursing, it's a good idea to start testing your reaction to certain ingredients like dairy, cabbage, broccoli or spicy foods to see if they cause colic or discomfort for your baby or YOU. And, since you need extra calories during this time, it's now safe to drink our Nut Magic Milkshakes, as they're a good source of healthy fat and protein.

Should I focus on certain foods during each trimester?
Does your PREGNANCY PLAN accommodate this?

Absolutely! Just let us know which trimester you are on and we can focus on certain foods. Good nutrition is extremely important, but can be challenging, particularly for women who suffer from morning sickness. Every bite counts!

First Trimester
•  MOST critical period for the baby's future health because of the rapid growth and organ and nervous system development
•  Folic acid is especially important during the first few weeks of pregnancy because it prevents major defects of the brain and spine.
   It's a type of vitamin B that our body uses to make new cells
•  Incorporating power foods like dark, leafy vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins is ideal
•  Foods like oatmeal, lamb, tilapia and almonds are top foods to eat during the first trimester because of their high levels of folic acid,
   iron, vitamin B6 and protein
•  Applesauce, broth and brown rice are gentle and soothing to morning-sick moms-to-be

Second Trimester
•  By now your battle with morning-sickness should be won and you are ready to dig-in
•  Focus on moderation, balance and variety when choosing your meal
•  Your baby's brain is developing and teeth and bones are growing. We've added our OsteoPLUS supplement to make sure
   you get enough vitamin D, calcium and zinc
•  Avocado, chickpeas, chia seeds, kale and turkey provide luxurious healthy fats, fiber, amino acids, antioxidants and lean protein
•  Eat probiotics to prevent infections, protect the baby at birth and ensure digestion of nutrients

Third Trimester
•  Time to really pack in the nutrient rich foods since fatigue can set in
•  Foods like WILD salmon (which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids), eggplant, garlic, and molasses help your heart
   and the baby's development
•  Test and see if cruciferous vegetables like cabbage and broccoli are making you bloated or gassy
•  Vitamin K rich foods like Brussels sprouts and asparagus help with blood clotting and preparing for breastfeeding
