A Mother’s D.I.E.T.*Planning Motherhood? No better time to explore
The foods and nutrients in the “Plate of Four”Milk and yogurt with calcium abound
Don’t forget riboflavin, here it is foundFruits and juices give you vitamin C.
Some fiber and folate; take it me.Vegetables add a lot to a meal.
Loaded with vitamins: such a good deal!Whole grain breads and cereals so nutrient dense.
To include them daily makes lots of sense.Protein keeps the body intact–
Critical for life. now that is a fact.The “EXTRA” category is familiar to all;
The fats and the oils—a diet downfall!This is the group that gets you in trouble;
As far as calories, they provide double! 

Protein and “carbs” per gram are four —
Fats give you nine, quite a bit more!

To maintain healthy complexion, pink and all
Walk briskly daily- outside –or in the mall.

These are the facts to help you decide
What you should eat or just push aside.

“Your baby must eat!” Remember that line
As you pull up your chair and sit down to dine.

Don’t think of “D.I.E.T.*” in any negative way
It’s the baby’s start to good health: begin today.
