Basics of Real Food Prenatal Nutrition


Webinar Details

Research is constantly evolving, especially in the field of prenatal nutrition, and yet, there’s a lag time between new evidence getting incorporated into public policy and nutrition guidelines. In other words, if you follow the scientific literature, there’s a lot of room for improvement in current prenatal guidelines.

If we want to give pregnant women the best chance of having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby, we desperately need to get better, more up-to-date, and scientifically sound advice out there.


  • What is real food and why it makes sense during (and before) pregnancy
  • Where current prenatal nutrition guidelines miss the mark (and how we got where we are)
  • Myths surrounding prenatal nutrition and evidence supporting an alternative approach (I’ll cover specific examples including salt, macronutrients, select micronutrients, food safety, and more)
  • Are current recommendations really evidence-based?
  • Why we need a paradigm shift
  • Rationale for a real food diet that incorporates principles from ancestral nutrition/traditional cultures
  • Sample meal plans and nutrient breakdown from conventional policy compared to real food.
